2020-6-10 14:36

BEIJING, June 10 (Xinhua) -- China's consumer inflation eased in May on retreating food prices as the country restored work and production orderly amid generally stable COVID-19 situation, official data showed Wednesday.

China's consumer price index (CPI), a main gauge of inflation, rose 2.4 percent year on year in May, moderating from the 3.3-percent growth in April, according to data from the National Bureau of Statistics.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices went down 0.8 percent. Food prices, which account for nearly one-third of weighting in China's CPI, dropped 3.5 percent last month.

In breakdown, vegetable prices fell 12.5 percent from April over rising supplies. Pork prices declined 8.1 percent from a month earlier as hog production continued to recover and warm weather dampened consumption.

Compared with the same period last year, food prices remained the main driver of consumer inflation in May, while its growth rate tapered from April to 10.6 percent.

In the first five months of this year, CPI went up 4.1 percent year on year on average.

Wednesday's data also showed China's producer price index, which measures inflation at the factory gates, fell 3.7 percent year on year last month.

 

新华社北京6月10日电官方数据显示,在新冠肺炎疫情总体稳定的情况下,随着生产生产有序进行,5月份食品价格回落,居民消费价格涨幅有所回落。


国家统计局数据显示,5月份我国居民消费价格指数(CPI)同比上涨2.4%,涨幅较4月份的3.3%有所回落。CPI是衡量通货膨胀的主要指标。


居民消费价格环比下降0.8%。占中国CPI权重近三分之一的食品价格上月下跌3.5%。


经过分析,由于供应增加,蔬菜价格较4月份下跌了12.5%。猪肉价格环比下降8.1%,原因是生猪产量继续回升,而温暖的天气抑制了消费。


与去年同期相比,5月份食品价格仍是消费者通胀的主要驱动因素,而其增长率从4月份开始逐渐放缓至10.6%。


今年1 - 5月,居民消费价格指数(CPI)同比平均上涨4.1%。


周三的数据还显示,上月中国的生产者价格指数(ppi)同比下降3.7%。
