Dow Jones Newswires: Caixin: China’s manufacturing sector declined at slower pace in May

0 22

A private gauge measuring activity in China’s manufacturing sector declined at a slower pace in May as more cities across the country emerged from lockdowns which brought daily life and economic activity almost to a standstill.

The Caixin China purchasing managers index rose to 48.1 in May from April’s 46.0–a 26-month low–marking the third straight month of contraction, according to data released Wednesday by Caixin Media Co. and S&P Global.

The reading pointed in the same direction as a competing official gauge released Tuesday, which also fell below the 50 mark separating expansion from contraction.
