Guangdong Manufacturing PMI (2016/04)
Guangdong Manufacturing PMI stayed above the 50-mark for two consecutive months in April 2016 after a further rise of 0.4 percentage point to 50.6 in the month. The indexes of output and new orders climbed further in April, while the indexes of raw materials inventories and employment stabilized, and the index of supplier deliveries dropped.
Note: The Guangdong manufacturing PMI is a composite index based on the diffusion indexes for the five major components: output, new orders, raw material inventories, employment, supplier delivery times. A PMI reading above 50 indicates that the manufacturing economy is generally expanding; below 50 indicates that it is generally declining.
