The findings were released by the Statistics and Economic Analysis Center of the Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture. 
PMI for the third month of the current fiscal year (May 22-June 21) stood at 50.66, down from 61.39 in the preceding month (April 21-May 21), indicating a 10.73-point or 17.47% decline month-on-month.
