Taiwan manufacturing PMI falls to three-year low in January

TOKYO -- Taiwan's manufacturing sector in January contracted at the fastest pace in more than three years as production and export sales fell, according to a survey. 

The Nikkei Taiwan Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, fell to 47.5 in January from 47.7 in December, falling further below the 50-point line separating expansion from contraction. It was the weakest reading since September 2015.
