Activity in China’s services sector rebounded in November, increasing at its fastest pace in five months, mainly on the back of resilient domestic demand as growth in foreign orders slowed, a Caixin survey showed Tuesday.

The Caixin China General Services Business Activity Index, which provides a snapshot of operating conditions in the country’s services sector, rose to 53.8 last month from 50.8 in October, the strongest reading since June. A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while anything below that points to contraction.
