Growth in China’s service activity accelerated by the most in more than seven years in January, a Caixin survey showed Monday, in a further sign the world’s second-largest economy has maintained momentum at the start of 2018.

The Caixin China General Services Business Activity Index rose to 54.7 last month, up from 53.9 in December. It was the highest reading since October 2010 and matched the figure of May 2012. A number above 50 indicates an expansion in activity, while a figure below that points to a contraction.
