BEIJING: China’s factory activity shrank at the sharpest pace since the pandemic first emerged nearly three years ago, after Beijing’s abrupt reversal of counter-epidemic measures set off a wave of Covid infections across the country.

The official purchasing managers’ index (PMI) fell to 47 in December from 48 in November, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said on Saturday.

Economists in a Reuters poll had expected the PMI to come in at 48. The 50-point mark separates contraction from growth on a monthly basis.

The drop was the biggest since the early days of the pandemic in February 2020.

The data offered the first official snapshot of the manufacturing sector after China removed the world’s strictest Covid restrictions in early December.

Cumulative infections likely reached 18.6 million in December, UK-based health data firm Airfinity estimated.

Analysts said surging infections could cause temporary labour shortages and increased supply chain disruptions.

Reuters reported that Tesla planned to run a reduced production schedule at its Shanghai plant in January, extending the reduced output it began this month into next year.




Weakening external demand on the back of growing global recession fears amid rising interest rates, inflation and the war in Ukraine may further slow China’s exports, hurting its massive manufacturing sector and hampering an economic recovery.

“Most factories I know are way below where they could be this time of year for orders next year. A lot of factories I’ve talked to are at 50%, some are below 20%,” said Cameron Johnson, a partner at Tidalwave Solutions, a supply chain consulting firm.

“So even though China is opening up, manufacturing is still going to slow down because the rest of the world’s economy is slowing down. Factories will have workers, but they will have no orders.”

NBS said 56.3% of surveyed manufacturers reported that they were greatly affected by the epidemic in December, up 15.5 percentage points from the previous month, although most also said they expected the situation would gradually improve.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, in his New Year’s Eve speech on state television, said China’s 2022 economic output was expected to exceed 120 trillion yuan (US$17.4 trillion or RM76.6 trillion).

In 2021, inflation-adjusted gross domestic product (GDP) reached 114.92 trillion yuan (RM73.3 trillion), up 8.4% from 2020.

GDP expanded 3% in the first nine months of 2022, versus China’s official full-year goal of around 5.5%. The World Bank expects 2022 growth of 2.7%.

China’s banking and insurance regulator pledged this week to step up financial support to small and private businesses in the catering and tourism sectors that were hit hard by the Covid-19 epidemic, stressing a consumption recovery will be a priority.
