    UK SHOP PRICES CONTINUE TO FALL IN MARCH: BRC

    6.jpg

    UK shop prices continued to fall in March as non-food retailers resorted to discounting, data from the British Retail Consortium, or BRC, showed Tuesday.

    The shop price index fell 2.4 percent on a yearly basis in March. Non-food prices were down 4 percent from last year, while food prices gained 0.3 percent.

    Retail prices fell again in March as the third consecutive month of lockdown led many non-food retailers, especially clothing, to heavily discount their products, Helen Dickinson, chief executive, at BRC, said.

    Rising global food prices, at their highest since 2014, as well as increased oil prices and shipping costs, and Brexit red tape will likely begin to filter through, pushing up prices at tills, Dickinson added.

    CHINA MANUFACTURING PMI SLOWS IN MARCH - CAIXIN

    6.jpg

    The manufacturing sector in China continued to expand in March, albeit at a slightly slower pace, the latest survey from Caixin showed on Thursday with a seasonally adjusted manufacturing PMI score of 50.6.

    That's down from 50.9 in February, although it remains well above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, production increased again amid a further uptick in sales, while export orders rose for the first time in three months.

    Manufacturers were confident that output would continue to rise over the next year, with the level of positive sentiment among the highest seen over the past seven years. Growth projections were heavily linked to expectations that the pandemic will end, and that global demand will recover.

    JAPAN SERVICES ACTIVITY SHRINKS LESS THAN ESTIMATED

    7.jpg

    Japan's services activity contracted at a slower than initially estimated pace in March, final data from IHS Markit showed on Monday.

    The au Jibun Bank Japan Services Purchasing Managers' Index rose to 48.3 in March from 46.3 in February. This was well above the flash score of 46.5 but below the neutral 50.0 mark, suggesting contraction in the sector. The latest reading was the highest since January 2020, as some companies lifted output at the end of the first quarter.

    New business inflows fell at a softer pace in the latest survey period. In anticipation of improving orders as the pandemic recedes, Japanese service providers increased employment levels for the second successive month.

    Average cost burdens climbed for the fourth straight month in March. However, average prices charged by service providers dropped further.

    Business optimism for activity in the next 12 months strengthened to the highest level since May 2013 in March.

    The composite output index, which measures combined output in the manufacturing and service sectors, rose to 49.9 in March from 48.2 in February. The flash score was 48.3.
