RTTNews - The purchasing managers' index in Hong Kong came in with a score of 49.9 in July, research company Markit Group said on Monday - moving up higher from 47.1 in June.

The July figure still indicates weakness, albeit barely as a 50 and above reading indicates expansion, while one below 50 suggests contraction.

The PMI measures economic conditions that include alterations in output, employment, delivery times, overstock and purchases. It is based on a survey of 300 companies.
