Employees assemble washing machines on the production line inside a factory of Hefei Rongshida Sanyo Electric in Hefei, Anhui province in this August 13, 2013 file photo. Growth in China's services industry slowed in September 2013 and optimism over the business outlook weakened, a private survey showed on October 8, 2013, indicating that the nascent recovery in the world's No.2 economy is likely to remain a slow one. The reading is in contrast to China's official services PMI, released last week, which showed the sector rose to 55.4 in September from August's 53.9.
