The data released by the National Bureau of Statistics a few days ago also showed that the prosperity of the service industry has increased.

Both the service industry production index and the number of new orders in July increased significantly compared with June. The surveyed companies said that in July, the market conditions became stronger, the number of customers and demand were boosted, and the output also increased at the same time. However, dragged down by the contraction of new orders in the manufacturing industry in July, the total number of new orders in the two major industries continued to grow, but the growth rate was low.

In July, the service industry employment index also returned to above the line of prosperity and decline. According to reports, companies have gradually increased their labor force to meet the expanding market demand, but some companies have also affected the scale of recruitment in order to control costs. Due to the increase in new orders and the lack of corporate manpower, the backlog of work in July increased slightly. The input price index and sales price index of the service industry rose again in July. The interviewed companies generally stated that labor costs, fuel costs and raw material prices have all increased recently. The pressure of rising input costs was transmitted to the sales side, and the sales price index also climbed in July.

Wang Zhe, senior economist at Caixin Think Tank, pointed out that the manufacturing and service industries continued to expand in July, the supply and demand were generally improving, and the job market was stable. However, the cost and sales price indices of the manufacturing and service industries are in the expansion range.

However, Du Xishuang, Director of the Service Industry Department of the National Bureau of Statistics, also pointed out previously that, overall, my country’s service industry economy continues to recover stably, but there are still many uncertain and unstable factors at home and abroad, and the foundation for the recovery of the service industry needs to be consolidated. In the next stage, it is necessary to accelerate the stimulation of the potential of domestic demand, smooth the economic cycle, consolidate the overall stable recovery of the service industry, and promote the steady and sound development of the national economy.
