By Fran Wang

(Beijing) — China’s services activity expanded at the weakest pace in six months in March, a survey sponsored by Caixin showed on Thursday, adding to signs that growth momentum in the economy is slowing.

The Caixin China General Services Business Activity Index came in at 52.2 in March, down from 52.6 in February. Although the figure is still well above the 50 mark that divides expansion from contraction, it was the worst reading since September and the third straight monthly fall.
