China's top economic planner says it's increasingly confident that consumer inflation in 2010 will be within the government's annual average target of 3 percent growth.
The National Development and Reform Commission says a growing number of factors will help to stabilize prices over the second half of the year. Consumer prices rose nearly 3 percent in the year to June.
Figures due on Wednesday are expected to show an accelerated 3.3 percent, boosted partly by rising food prices caused by extensive flooding across China.
