Economy, Steel

From a 13-month high of 54.8 in May, China’s steel sector Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) retreated slightly to 54.1 in June, but remained strong compared with recent months, according to data from the China Federation for Logistics and Purchasing reported by Bloomberg. By contrast, robust export orders helped the country’s official manufacturing PMI climb to the second highest level of the year at 51.7 points, up from 51.2 in May.
