However, the overall PMI services index for the eurozone improved slightly to 47.1 from 46.8 for the same period, although a figure of less than 50 signifies a contraction. Meanwhile, retail sales for the eurozone increased by 0.6% for May on a month-on-month. basis from a contraction of 1.4% previously.
