From the index level, the global manufacturing PMI has run below 53% for two consecutive months, significantly lower than the annual average of 54.5% in 2018.

From the perspective of investment, although the growth rate of global foreign direct investment has declined, the decline area is mainly concentrated in Europe and North America.
