    Abstract

    Changes in business confidence were as broadly based as in the previous quarter. Rising trends in business optimism were reported in manufacturing and construction, but declining trends were evident in the service sector. Optimism was generally stronger in the production sector in the second half of 2000, whereas it was generally stronger in the service sector the first half of 2000.
