“The final November manufacturing PMI stood at a 13- month high of 50.5 on increasing new business and expanding production. This confirms that Chinese economy continues to recover gradually. We expect GDP growth to rebound modestly to around 8% in 4Q as the easing measures continue to filter through.”

On Friday, we learned that the official NBS manufacturing PMI report climbed to 50.6 in November from 50.2 in October.
