Hong Kong Inflation Steady For Second Month

Hong Kong’s consumer price inflation held steady for the second straight month in December, figures from the Census and Statistics Department showed Monday.

The consumer price index rose 1.2 percent year-over-year in December, the same rate of increase as in the previous two months.

The underlying inflation, which excludes one-off relief measures of the government, eased slightly to 2.0 percent in December from 2.1 percent in November.

Food prices grew 3.0 percent annually in December and prices of miscellaneous goods went up 2.3 percent. At the same time, prices of durable goods fell 5.2 percent and those of clothing and footwear slid by 3.6 percent.

For the whole year 2016, the overall CPI was on average 2.4 percent higher than in preceding year, the agency reported.

“Looking ahead, inflation risks should remain contained in the near term, given the soft import prices and tame local cost pressures. The Government will continue to monitor the inflation developments closely, particularly its impact on the lower-income people,” a government spokesman said.
