China's consumer price index, a main gauge of inflation, rose 5.2 percent year-on-year in February, edging down from 5.4 percent in the previous month, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday.

 

Zhao Maohong, an NBS official, said that the novel coronavirus outbreak has had a complicated impact on prices but the country has been able to maintain generally stable prices as the government has been actively facilitating production resumption and ensuring supplies to stabilize prices.

 

The food price was the main contributor to CPI growth, rising 21.9 percent year-on-year in February. The surge of food prices was mainly due to the supply disruption and increase of labor cost for distribution as a result of the epidemic, according to the NBS.

 

The core CPI, which excludes food and energy prices, rose 1 percent year-on-year, edging down from 1.5 percent in the previous month.

 

Meanwhile, China's producer price index declined 0.4 percent year-on-year in February, affected by the sharp drop of prices of crude oil and natural gas in the international markets.

国家统计局周二表示,2月份中国消费者价格指数(cpi)同比上涨5.2%,较上月的5.4%小幅回落。cpi是衡量通胀的主要指标。


国家统计局官员赵茂红表示,新型冠状病毒的爆发对价格产生了复杂的影响,但国家能够保持价格总体稳定,因为政府一直在积极促进恢复生产,并确保供应稳定价格。


食品价格是CPI增长的主要因素,2月份同比上涨21.9%。国家统计局表示,食品价格上涨的主要原因是疫情造成的供应中断和配送劳动力成本增加。


不包括食品和能源价格的核心CPI同比上涨1%,略低于上月的1.5%。


与此同时,受国际市场原油和天然气价格大幅下跌的影响,中国2月份生产者价格指数(ppi)同比下降0.4%。
