China's Caixin manufacturing PMI steadies at 50.2 in May, Aussie hits 3-week tops
Monday, 3 June 2019 09:01 WIB | ECONOMY |

China's May Caixin manufacturing PMI came in at 50.2 vs. 50.0 expected and 50.2 last, as operating conditions improved for the first time in four months.

On Friday, the purchasing managers' index (PMI) for China's manufacturing sector arrived at 49.4 in May, down from 50.1 in April, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) reported.

œChinese manufacturing firms signalled a further slight improvement in overall operating conditions during May. Total new work rose at a faster pace, supported by a renewed increase in export sales, while production was broadly stable. As a result, backlogs of work continued to expand, though firms retained a relatively cautious approach to staffing levels. Inflationary pressures remained subdued, with input costs rising only slightly while output charges were unchanged from the previous month. However, business confidence regarding the year ahead softened midway through the second quarter.

œUnderpinning the positive PMI figure was a further increase in total new orders placed with Chinese goods producers. The rate of new business growth quickened slightly since April, supported by a renewed increase in new export sales. According to panellists, new product releases and firmer foreign demand supported the expansion. Production at Chinese manufacturers was meanwhile stable in May, following a slight increase in the previous month.
