Chinese manufacturing accelerates for second straight month


China’s manufacturing activity accelerated for a second straight month in September, official figures showed Saturday, although an independent indicator was less positive about the world’s second largest economy. The sector expanded at its fastest pace since 2012 after rebounding in August, official data showed. “The indicator showed a steady upward trend in the manufacturing sector,” national bureau of statistics official Zhao Qinghe was quoted as saying by the official Xinhua news agency.—AFP
