China's inflation likely to ease in November

11-30-2011 13:21 BJT

BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- China's inflation is predicted to fall for a fourth consecutive month in November with the consumer price index (CPI) likely to drop to 4.3 percent, according to a Bank of Communications' report.

Food prices have dropped as warm weather has allowed for an abundant winter supply of vegetables, eggs and pork, according to the report.

According to data from the Ministry of Commerce, pork prices dropped 1 percent than last week and were down 10.7 percent cumulatively since mid-September.

Egg prices have fallen in consecutive weeks, down 5 percent in the past two months, as supplies increased, the ministry said.

Food prices have a one-third weighting in the calculation of China's CPI, which eased to 5.5 percent last month, down from 6.1 percent in September.

In addition to lower food prices, declines in global commodity prices and weakening tail-raising factors will also contribute to the CPI's decline in November, the report said.
