China's consumer price index, the main gauge of inflation, rose 2.5% in June year on year, while producer price index, measuring the trend and degree of changes in factory gate prices, fell 3.0%, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed on July 9.
The growth of CPI paused downside trending in June, as the major inflation indicator saw its year-on-year increase slow for the fourth consecutive month, at 5.2% in February, 4.3% in March, 3.3% in April and 2.4% in May, after reaching a peak of 5.4% in January, the Securities Daily reported on July 9.
The factory gate price gauge, however, picked up 0.4% from a month earlier, as prices of global commodities picked up and domestic manufacturing sectors recovered gradually.
