The Sales Managers Index: China

The First Data on Economic Activity Levels in China - Every Month

Released: 21 May 2020

China Sales Managers Report Continuing Recovery in May

  • Business Confidence back at pre-Covid levels
  • Sales Index recovers to over 50 level, reflecting growth over April, albeit of very modest proportions
  • Staffing levels still reeling from the virus impact and need for social distancing

Sales managers report that most companies are now operational and back to near capacity potential.

The problem is now demand and not capacity constraints.

Export markets remain depressed as clients in many western countries are still in lockdown.

However overall the Chinese economy is showing remarkable resilience, with most schools, factories, restaurants and stores now open.
