Due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, many major manufacturing centers in China took a long time lockdown Manufacturing activities did not pick up pace in the month of July even after the withdrawal of Rs. A survey report published on Sunday has revealed an unsatisfactory situation about China’s manufacturing landscape. According to this report by China’s official statistics agency and industry group China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing, manufacturing activity remained sluggish in July due to weak global demand and strict measures to control the spread of the virus.

Exports and employment in China weakened

The direct effect of reduced manufacturing activities can come in the form of reduction in employment opportunities.
