China’s services sector surges at fastest pace for four months

In October, China's services sector ascended at the strongest pace for four months, as new business managed to pick up, thus encouraging companies to hire more employees, a private poll showed.

The figures were first announced by Caixin, Chinese financial news outlet on its site.  

The findings as well as positive official factory and services news earlier this week, add to the statement that the world's second-largest economy turns to be on a steadier footing.

Beijing is currently increasingly counting on the services sector for the purpose of creating jobs and driving growth as it looks to shift its economic modeltoward consumption from a conventional reliance on investment and exports.

In October, the Caixin/Markit services purchasing managers' index added to about 52.4 on a seasonally adjusted basis from September’s outcome of 52.0, thus reporting the strongest reading since June.

A reading above the 50-mark points out to expansion in activity on a monthly basis.
