The manufacturing sector in Vietnam continued to expand in July, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Nikkei showed on Tuesday with a manufacturing PMI score of 51.7.
That's down from 52.5 in June, although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Input cost inflation eased to a 13-month low.
