Taipei, June 25 (CNA) Local enterprises’ outlook toward the domestic manufacturing 201506250027t0001sector improved slightly in May, according to a monthly report released Thursday by the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research (TIER, 台灣經濟研究院).

Based on the institute’s monthly survey of business sentiment in Taiwan, its manufacturing composite index rose 0.13 points from a month earlier to 96.42 in May, breaking a three-month losing streak.     [FULL STORY]
