China Official Services PMI Rises to 56.7 in June

July 2 (Reuters) — China’s official purchasing managers’ index (PMI) for the services sector rose t o 56.7 in June from May’s 55.2, reversing two months of softening readings, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on Tuesday.

The services sector index follows two PMI surveys of China’s vast manufacturing industry that showed factory activity fell to a seven-month low in June, raising expectations for further policy easing to boost growth in the world’s No 2 economy.

A reading below 50 indicates contracting activity and one above 50 means expansion according to the survey methodology.

The China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing conducts the survey on behalf of China’s National Bureau of Statistics.

China’s fast-growing services industry has so far weathered the global slowdown much better than the factory sector, with the PMI consistently signaling healthy expansion and hitting a 10-month high of 58.0 in March.
