Optimistic Outlook for New Business Expansion despite Contraction in Employment Levels

Services sector in China sees acceleration in growth in March with increased new business volume, marking fastest growth in 3 months.

March saw a surge in new business expansion, with the fastest growth since December. This increase in demand led to higher hopes for new product lines, expansion plans, and increased client budgets. The subindex of future activity rose for the first time in three months, further supporting this optimism. Despite the positive sales and business confidence, there was no significant increase in recruitment levels. Employment levels shrank for a second consecutive month in March due to resignations among staff and redundancies made to improve productivity. Both the manufacturing and services sectors experienced growth in supply and demand, with exports improving and sustained market optimism. The composite PMI rose to 52.7 last month from 52.5 in February due to this acceleration in growth and positive Caixin manufacturing PMI readings. However, economist Wang Zhe from Caixin Insight Group noted that employment levels continued to contract while input and output prices remained low, indicating sluggish demand persisted despite the overall positive outlook for new business expansion and business confidence.
