Heavier than expected

Sentiment in China’s industry is gloomy

In China, the mood among large and state-related companies deteriorated even more in December than experts had expected. The index value determined for the mood of purchasing managers in the manufacturing sector fell by one point to 47.0 points.

This emerged from a statement published over the weekend by the national statistics agency. Analysts had only expected a drop to 47.8 points. The value for service providers fell by 5.1 points to 41.6 points. Economists had expected 45.0 points here.

The background to the development is likely to be the fear of possible consequences of the Chinese government’s new corona policy. This had recently reversed itself after, unlike almost all other countries, it initially did not relax its strict zero-Covid policy. However, the number of infections in the country is now increasing rapidly.
