WELLINGTON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Manufacturing activity in New Zealand picked up in September due to a boost in activity after a coronavirus lockdown in Auckland, its largest city, was lifted, a survey showed on Friday.
The Bank of New Zealand-Business NZ's seasonally adjusted Performance of Manufacturing Index (PMI) was 54.0, from 50.7 in the previous month.
A reading above 50 indicates an expansion in activity, while anything below that threshold indicates a contraction.
