SINGAPORE – Singapore's electronics industry rose in June, reversing a one-month fall into recession. The sector rose 2.3 points to 51.7, according to purchasing executives in more than 150 industrial companies.
 
May was the first time in nearly two years the electronics sector failed to grow.

The national purchasing managers' index rose 1.6 points sequentially to 50.6 in June, on new orders and higher levels of production output. A reading above 50.0 is a sign of an expanding market.
 
Electronics makes up one-third of Singapore's manufacturing output.
