China consumer inflation picks up
The yearly pace of consumer prices rose 2.5 per cent in May, just more than anticipated and up from 1.8 per cent in April.

Overall, consumer prices remain benign. This is only the highest reading since January, and the government's inflation target is 3.5 per cent.

Price gains are limited in part because the government is cooling the housing market.

But prices of food jumped in April, accounting for the small surprise. Food prices were up 4.1 per cent from a year ago, versus just 2.3 per cent from a month earlier.

Producer prices, meanwhile, remained in deflationary territory for a 27th consecutive month. However, the fall in prices was much slower than a month earlier. The PPI showed a 1.4 per cent fall, versus -2.0 per cent in April.

The deflationary picture for producers reflects weak demand, owing to "rampant overcapacity in sectors including steel and cement, which is keeping down prices of raw materials," said analysts at Moody's Analytics. They added:

The government's 'mini-stimulus' in boosting rail investment will assist in turning things around through this year and next.

中国国家统计局周二公布的数据显示,今年5月消费者物价指数(CPI)同比上涨2.5%,高于预期,而且高于4月的1.8%,表明通缩威胁正在弱化。

总体来看,消费者物价涨幅依然温和。这只是自今年1月以来的最高涨幅,而政府的通胀目标为3.5%。

消费者物价上涨有限,部分因为政府正在给房地产市场降温。

然而,令人略感意外的是,5月份食品价格同比大幅上涨4.1%,而4月份的同比涨幅仅为2.3%。

与此同时,生产者物价指数(PPI)仍连续第27个月下降,不过5月份1.4%的降幅要远低于4月的2.0%。

Moody's Analytics分析师表示,生产者物价呈现下降走势,反映需求疲弱,原因是“钢铁和水泥等行业普遍存在产能过剩,正继续推低原材料价格。”

他们补充称:“中国政府扩大铁路投资的‘微刺激’,将帮助经济形势在今年下半年和明年出现好转。”
