China's services sector edges up at the stronger pace in November

In November, surge in China's services sector activity managed to pick up to a three-month maximum, underpinned by a firm soar in new businesses, although the rate of expansion was still modest and weaker than the long-run trend, as a private poll disclosed on Tuesday.

The optimistic findings generally echo those of an official indicator of the non-manufacturing sector the previous week, which demonstrated that in November activity speeded up at a faster rate, thus backing the view that an anticipated slowdown in the broader Chinese economy would be quite gradual.

In November, the Caixin/Markit services purchasing managers' index tacked on to 51.9, gaining from October’s outcome of 51.2 and being the highest outcome since August.

An outcome above 50 shows surge, while any lower reading stands for contraction on a monthly basis.

In September, the index had declined to 21-month minimum having hit a three-month maximum in August.
