HONG KONG (AP) Two reports show that Chinese manufacturing was anemic in January as the world's second biggest economy slows and global demand remains weak.

The final version of HSBC's purchasing managers' index released Monday edged up to 49.7 last month from 49.6 in December.

It's the second straight month that the index, based on a survey of factory purchasing managers, found a contraction. Readings above 50 on the index's 100-point scale indicate manufacturing is expanding.

The private survey comes a day after an official index found that factory activity fell to a 28-month low in the same month.

The China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing's report gives more weight to larger, state-owned companies while HSBC's survey is more focused on smaller, private businesses.
