Economy in China   The index rose to 51.8

China's economic performance continued to exceed forecasts in March, the results of two key activity surveys revealed.

The official manufacturing sector purchasing managers' index rose from 51.6 for February to 51.8 in March.

That was ahead of the consensus forecast for a reading of 51.7.

In parallel, an equivalent survey for the non-manufacturing side of the Chinese economy showed activity bolted ahead during the same month, with the headline printing at 55.1, up from 54.2 in the month before.
