China readies to feel national economic pulse, Xinhua says

China has started registering players in the manufacturing and service sectors for its third national economic census, Xinhua reported Wednesday. Census staff aim to complete the registration process in three months, enrolling more than 10 million institutions and about 60 million individual business operators via mobile devices, according to National Bureau of Statistics chief Ma Jiantang. Staff will collect data — including enterprise ownership, financial status, production capacity, energy and resource use as well as research and development activities — for publication in the second half of the year, the report said.
