The Caixin China General Services PMI fell to a seven-month low of 51.3 in September 2019 from 52.1 in the previous month and below market expectations of 52.9. New orders rose the most since January 2018, despite a softer increase in new export work, with a number of firms linking the upturn to new product releases and firmer client demand. In addition, employment growth was the quickest seen since January 2017 while backlogs of work were up for the first time since last December. On the price front, input cost inflation picked up to one-year high due to greater costs for labour, fuel and raw materials. Looking ahead, business optimism in the service sector slipped to its lowest since May. Services PMI in China is reported by Markit Economics.
