FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) The latest developments on the day the European Central Bank is expected to announce a further stimulus for the 19-country eurozone economy. All times local:

A closely watched survey suggests that the economic recovery across the eurozone is getting stronger but that price gains remain subdued.

Financial information company Markit says its purchasing managers' index a broad gauge of activity across the manufacturing and services sector rose to 54.2 points in November from 53.9 the previous month. Anything above 50 indicates expansion.

Markit says that the rates of expansion in output, new orders and employment all accelerated to be at, or close to, the fastest for 4 years. It also says backlogs of work suggest that solid growth may continue at the end of the year.

However, the survey shows that the faster growth is not fueling inflation. Low levels of inflation are the primary reason why the ECB is expected to announce new stimulus later.
