Hong Kong Inflation Rate Rises To 0.5% In March


Consumer prices in Hong Kong increased 0.5 percent year-on-year in March of 2017, compared to a 0.1 percent drop in the prior month. The recovery in CPI was mainly driven by prices of housing, meals bought away from home and transport.

Year-on-year, prices recovered for housing (0.1 percent from -0.3 percent), meals bought away from home (2.7 percent vs -3.7 percent) and rose for transport (3.2 percent, the same pace as in February). Additional upward pressure came from miscellaneous goods and services (1.1 percent vs 1.2 percent), clothing and footwear (0.4 percent vs -3.3 percent) and alcoholic drinks and tobacco (2.5 percent vs 2.7 percent). Meanwhile, prices fell less for durable goods (-3.1 percent vs -3.7 percent), food (excluding meals bought away from home) (-1.6 percent vs -3.7 percent) and electricity, gas and water (-1.2 percent vs -7.5 percent).
