Manufacturing Growth in China Falls in October Unexpectedly

BEIJING, November 1 - China's manufacturing growth fall to a five-month low in October along with a slowing economy and a weak global demand. The official Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fall to 50.8 in October from September's 51.1, according to a survey from the National Bureau of Statistics that was released on Saturday. They also noted that it is still above the 50-point level that separates growth from contraction on a monthly basis.

The PMI showed foreign and domestic demand fall to five- and six-month lows, respectively, with overseas orders shrinking slightly on a monthly basis.

China's growth fell to 7.3% in the third quarter, its lowest level since the 2008 and 2009 global financial crisis, as the housing market sagged and domestic demand and investments are down.

Chinese government have said that full-year economic growth may fall short of their 7.5% target, but that it would be acceptable as long as inflation stays low and the economy continues to produce jobs.

The World Bank has said that China's growth could possible go down to about 7% next year, they said that Beijing should found a way to promote competition and efficiency through reforms in their labor and real estate markets along with its state-run financial system.
