中国 消費者物価指数 前年同月比0.4％上昇 2021年3月
China’s official consumer price index (CPI) rose by 0.4% y/y in March, in contrast to a 0.2% y/y decline in the previous month. Food prices fell by 0.7% y/y in March, driven mainly by falling pork prices. Core CPI, excluding volatile food and energy prices, increased by 0.3% in March from a year earlier.
According to China’s NBS, this month’s headline CPI y/y increase was due to the significant weakening of the negative impact of carry-over factors.
