Taiwan’s consumer confidence index (CCI) rose to its highest level ever in February as the
country’s economic climate continued to show signs of improvement.
National Central University, which conducts the monthly consumer confidence survey, said the CCI rose 1.69 points from a month earlier to 91.13, the highest the index has ever been since the university started the survey in January 2004.
Among the CCI’s six sub-indexes in the CCI, which reflect how consumers feel about aspects of Taiwan’s economy over the coming six months, five trended higher in February while one sub-index registered a month-on-month fall, the survey found.
The university said the stock investment sub-index showed the highest month-on-month gain of 7.50 points from a month earlier as it improved to 104.80, followed by a 2.05-point gain in the business climate sub-index to 87.65. [FULL STORY]
