Two fast growing economies, China and India, saw their services PMI slump significantly in April. Certainly, it is not good news as indeed these two countries with other Asian nations have been driving the growth of the global economy – nothing to sneeze at. The findings by HSBC Holdings show, however, that India and China will face more challenges on their growth road.
According to official data, China’s services PMI in January jumped to 56.2. Certainly, the improvement was driven by retailing and construction segments which bolstered and boosted government efforts to get the China’s economy back on track. The services PMI for January is another sign that the China’s economy is indeed recovering from a slowdown.
