The Mastercard Caixin BBD New Economy Index (NEI) climbed to 31.33 in November from October’s 29.8, indicating that “new economy” industries accounted for 31.33% of China’s overall economic input activities — the highest reading since December 2017. The NEI measures labor, capital and technology inputs in 10 emerging industries relative to those in all industries.
