The Sales Managers Index: China

The First Data for China Services - Every Month
Released: 24 October 2019

China Services Sector Bounces Back in October from September Low

  • The October numbers from the Chinese Sales Managers Survey made better reading than last month, with the Headline Index registering 51.3
  • The Business Confidence Index also provided some cheering news, rising to a healthy if not over enthusiastic 52.4
  • The Staffing Index also bounced, although even with the upturn the numbers remained fractionally below the 50 "no growth" level

In summary, the October Services data looked significantly healthier than was the case in September, suggesting that trade wars or not, the Chinese economy is still capable of further growth.
