    UK SHOP PRICES CONTINUE TO FALL IN MARCH: BRC

    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

    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.

    MYANMAR MANUFACTURING PMI IMPROVES TO 33.0 IN APRIL - MARKIT

    The manufacturing sector in Myanmar continued to contract in April, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Markit Economics revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 33.0.

    That's up from 27.5 in March and it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    All five of the PMI components had positive directional influences on the headline figure in April, but four (the exception being suppliers' delivery times) remained well inside negative territory. Output and new orders both fell at the fifth-fastest rates in the survey history, while stocks of purchases and employment contracted at the third- and fourth-quickest rates on record, respectively.

    Although firms expect output to rise by April 2022 on balance, overall expectations were the weakest in over two years.

    HONG KONG PRIVATE SECTOR PMI EBBS IN APRIL - MARKIT

    The private sector in Hong Kong continued to expand in April, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Markit Economics showed on Wednesday with a services PMI score of 50.3.

    That's down from 50.5 in March although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    A reduced level of COVID-19 case numbers and the loosening of restrictions contributed to improving business conditions at the start of the second quarter of the year.

    Total new orders had fallen for the same length of time but stabilized during April. While the situation regarding the pandemic had shown signs of improvement, a number of firms continued to be negatively impacted, preventing more pronounced expansions in output and new orders.
