China Manufacturing Slows for Second Month, PMI Shows

China’s manufacturing growth slowed more than economists forecast in June, adding to signs that the world’s fastest-growing major economy is cooling.

The government’s Purchasing Managers’ Index declined for a second month, falling to 52.1 from 53.9 in May. The median forecast in a Bloomberg News survey of 12 economists was 53.2. An HSBC Holdings Plc manufacturing index slid to a 14-month low.
