According to media reports, official data released by China’s National Bureau of Statistics revealed that the factory PMI rose to 51.8 in November from 51.6 in October. China’s National Bureau of Statistics measures large state-owned enterprises in this index. Any figure above 50 represents an expansion while any figure below 50 shows a contraction.

Accordingly, the latest official data showed that an index for new export orders slightly increased to 53.6 in November from a reading of 52.9 in October.

However, the data released by the Caixin Purchasing Managers’ Index, a private measure which captures mid-sized companies, showed that the country’s official manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) declined to the reading of 50.8 in November from 51 in October, in line with the economists’ expectations of 50.9.

The decline was attributed to higher input costs and stricter pollution measures taken by the Chinese government.

The official services and construction industries PMI was slightly up to 54.8 in November from 54.3 in October.

Meanwhile, China’s GDP growth is expected to decline to 6.6% in the fourth quarter of 2017 from 6.8% in the previous quarter.
