China’s Services Sector Advanced At Slowest Rate In Last 8 Months

Recently, a private survey showed that China’s services sector activity advanced at its slowest rate in the last 8 Months in October since new orders dropped and business confidence reaches a 15-Month low. Apparently, Beijing was counting on the services sector that sums up for over half of China’s financial system, to partly counterbalance sluggish national and international demand for manufactured goods as a prolonged trade battle with the U.S. drags on. The Caixin/Markit services PMI (purchasing managers’ index) dropped to 51.1 in the past month, corresponding February’s low and September’s decline from 51.3. It has stayed over the 50-point edge that divides growth from reduction on a monthly basis from 2005.

The fall shows extensive pressure on the services domain, following the October reading for the authorized non-manufacturing PMI, submitted by the NBS (National Bureau of Statistics), dropped to the lowest level from February 2016. According to Zhengsheng Zhong—Director of Macroeconomic Analysis from CEBM Group—said that the anticipations regarding the 1-Year prospect for business activity dropped to the lowest level since July 2018, the Caixin PMI illustrated and indicating depressed business sentiments in the middle of subdued market circumstances.

Speaking of China’s economy, recently, Chinese President Xi Jinping stated that international issues should be resolved through discussions, and encouraged collaboration rather than separation. Xi called for “consultation and cooperation” to resolve universal disputes. Xi was addressing the CIIE (China International Import Expo), which was first established in the last November in a plan to promote the nation as a consumer of the world’s goods. Nonetheless, the EUCCC (European Chamber of Commerce in China) expressed skepticism concerning the last year’s expo, and only a marginal of members from the AmCham Shanghai (American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai) stated they were intending to participate in this year’s CIIE.
