June 23 (Bloomberg) –- HSBC Greater China Economist John Zhu discusses China’s just released June Flash PMI data, which came in better than expected, and what it means for the economy with Rishaad Salamat on Bloomberg Television’s “On The Move.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Got a number of 50.8. let's get a reaction.

John, thanks for joining us.

I think it was fairly broad-based.

It was a strong rebound in output.

Acceleration in new orders in general.

Overall, it seems the economy has turned a corner.

Wasn't it that bad before in the first place?

That might be down to inventories, as well.

Inventories number actually continued to contract this month.

On the whole, -- was it mean the numbers have contracted?

In a way, it is good going forward.

It suggests that manufacturers can increase out put if the market continues to sustain its current rate.

It is going to be a while before we see data.

There tends to be a lag.

There could be more to come, i think.
