Zhao Qinghe, a senior statistician at the Service Industry Survey Center of the National Bureau of Statistics, said that the various sub-indices of the manufacturing PMI generally improved that month.
Among the 21 industries surveyed, the number of PMIs in the expansion range increased to 19, and the manufacturing boom has expanded.
From the perspective of production and demand, in November, the production index and the new order index were 54.7% and 53.9%, which were 0.8 and 1.1 percentage points higher than the previous month, and both rose to the high point of the year, and the difference between the two since June The month-to-month reduction, from 2.5 percentage points to 0.8 percentage points, indicates that the endogenous power of the manufacturing industry has been continuously enhanced and the supply-demand cycle has continued to improve.
The prosperity of imports and exports has steadily recovered.
The new export order index and import index of the month were 51.5% and 50.9%, which were 0.5 and 0.1 percentage points higher than the previous month, both of which were highs during the year. They have been in the expansion range for three consecutive months, maintaining a monthly upward trend.
With the recent general increase in commodity prices and the acceleration of production and procurement activities by enterprises, the purchasing prices of raw materials and product sales in the manufacturing industry have increased significantly that month.
The purchase price index and ex-factory price index of major raw materials were 62.6% and 56.5%, which were 3.8 and 3.3 percentage points higher than last month, and both were highs during the year.
It is worth mentioning that in November, the PMIs of large, medium and small enterprises were 53.0%, 52.0% and 50.1% respectively, which were 0.4, 1.4 and 0.7 percentage points higher than the previous month, and were all above the threshold.
The survey results showed that the production and operation conditions of small enterprises improved during the month, and the proportion of small enterprises reflecting capital shortage was 42.3%, which was 2.6 percentage points lower than last month and was the lowest point this year.
However, Zhao Qinghe also reminded that the recovery of the manufacturing industry is still uneven. The PMI of the textile and apparel industry has always been below the critical point this year, and the industry's prosperity continues to be weak.
In addition, China's non-manufacturing industry also continued its steady and positive recovery trend.
In November, China's non-manufacturing business activity index was 56.4%, 0.2 percentage points higher than last month, and stayed in a relatively high economic range above 55.0% for 4 consecutive months.
