MNI to Release Advance Results for China Business Sentiment Survey

Beijing, March 14, 2011 — Beginning March 18, Market News International will release advance results for its China Business Sentiment Survey. The MNI Flash China Business Sentiment Survey will consist of five of the main indicators out of the 12 in the complete survey of current conditions.

The five indicators in the flash results will be Overall Conditions, Financial State, New Orders, Production and Availability of Credit.

The complete survey, including tables of historical data, will continue to be released on the last Friday of every month at 0935 Beijing time, with the flash results released exactly one week ahead. The complete results include all 12 indicators for current conditions, plus the 12 sentiment indicators for conditions in three months.

Internal testing has shown the flash result includes about 85% of the respondents in the full survey and should therefore be an accurate representation of the final results.

Since January 2005, the MNI China Business Sentiment Survey has proved an accurate gauge of conditions in the Chinese economy and a bellwether for shifts ahead. As the first source of economic data in China every month, the MNI survey has helped subscribers position themselves ahead of official data and other business surveys released days or weeks later.
