(ADX) International  Markit: US, Eurozone factory activity up; China decline slows – The US manufacturing sector expanded in April and the Eurozone private sector started the second quarter on its strongest footing since 2011, while the pace of decline in Chinese factory activity slowed. Financial data firm Markit found that factory activity in the US continued to expand, but the pace of growth stalled and came in below expectations. However, output growth hit its fastest in three years. Markit’s preliminary or flash US Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index dipped to 55.4 in April 2014 from 55.5 in March 2014. Economists polled by Reuters expected a reading of 56.0. This report suggests that the US manufacturing is gaining more orders and has bounced back from the bad winter weather. The data highlights expectations for a strong second quarter after the first one saw colder temperatures and massive snowstorms weigh on the US economic activity. Meanwhile, data showed that China's HSBC- Markit flash PMI for April rose to 48.3 from March's final reading of 48.0, but was still below the 50 level that separates expansion from contraction. (Reuters)  BoE: UK economy picking up speed – Britain's economic recovery is gaining momentum, but the Bank of England’s (BoE) policymakers held different views about the amount of slack in the economy and the medium-term inflation outlook. Minutes from the recent meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee showed that the bank expects the UK economy to have grown by 1% in 1Q2014 from the fourth quarter of 2013, up slightly from a previous growth forecast of 0.9%. Committee members also thought it was possible that a sustainable rise in real wages, consistent with a durable recovery, was on the way. However, the committee members were unsure on how much scope Britain's economy had to grow without generating inflation. Britain's inflation dropped to 1.6% in March from 1.7% in February – the lowest level since October 2009. (Reuters)  ECB would not rule out QE, but don't need it yet – The European Central Bank’s (ECB) policymaker Ewald Nowotny said he would not rule out quantitative easing (QE) program to buy sovereign bonds, but the time for such a step has not yet come. Seeking to head off a drop in inflation expectations, the ECB Governing Council said it was unanimous in its commitment to use unconventional tools to counter a protracted period of low inflation. Nowotny said that purchases of government bonds on the secondary market would be compatible with the EU law. Eurozone inflation is now running at 0.5%, well below the ECB's target of around 2% over the medium term. The central bank wants to avert any drop in inflation expectations that could lead to a prolonged period of so-called "low-flation", or even a drop into outright deflation. (Reuters)  China rules out need for short-term stimulus measures – A senior Chinese official stated that China will not use forceful stimulus measures to fight any short-term dips in economic growth, reiterating the government's official stance. Li Pumin, Secretary of the National Development & Reform Commission, was quoted as saying that macroeconomic policies would not change as long as inflation was under control, and employment and economic growth stayed above a minimum level. His remarks echoed comments made by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang earlier this month, when he ruled out the need for aggressive policy easing to combat any temporary slowdown and stated that China's economy has to grow at around 7.2% annually to support a healthy labor market. China's economy grew at its slackest pace in 18 months in the first quarter as investment and factory output declined to multi-year lows.
