Buoyed by a construction boom, China’s economic recovery continued apace in July, new sentiment data suggested.
The official manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) for July stood at 51.1,
with a reading above 50.0 suggesting expansion in factory output.
This was slightly better than June’s reading of 50.9 and was better than analysts’ expectations,
with the median result of a Bloomberg survey standing at 50.8.
Conducted through a survey of factory owners and purchasing managers, the PMI is a sentiment gauge.
It offers an early snapshot of the state of China’s economy during the month ahead
quizzing operators on issues like hiring, export orders, and inventory.
