Caixin New Economy Index Falls on Drop in Labor Investment
The contribution of high value-added industries such as biotech to China’s total economic inputs dropped in August due chiefly to a decrease in labor investment, a Caixin index showed Friday.
The Caixin BBD New Economy Index (NEI) came in at 29.9 last month, indicating that new economy industries accounted for 29.9% of China’s overall economic input activities. The reading was down from 31.4 in July.
