TOKYO -- The Nikkei Indonesia Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, fell to 49.5 in June from 50.6 in May.
A reading above 50 indicates economic expansion, while one below 50 points toward contraction. Latest figure shows the first contraction in four months.
"The upturn in manufacturing was interrupted during June as weak domestic demand triggered reductions in output and employment," said Pollyanna De Lima, an economist at IHS Markit, which compiles the survey.
"These factors, combined with stagnant order books and a softer increase in input stocks, resulted in a PMI reading that was consistent with worsening operating conditions in the sector," the economist said.
