China's PPI growth slows to two-year-low in November


16:26, December 09, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Growth in China's producer prices decelerated to the lowest pace in nearly two years as market demand fell on future economic uncertainties.

China's Producer Price Index (PPI), a main gauge of inflation at the wholesale level, rose 2.7 percent in November year-on-year, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday.

The reading eased significantly from October's 5-percent growth, which was expected to stay around 3.6 percent, according to previous estimations.

On a month-on-month basis, China's PPI fell 0.7 percent from October, the NBS said in a statement on its website.

Producer purchase prices grew 5.1 percent year-on-year in November and were down 0.7 percent from a month ago, said the NBS.

In the first eleven months of the year, the PPI climbed 6.4 percent year-on-year, while producer purchase prices rose 9.7 percent from a year earlier.

The sharp decline in producer prices growth was a result of a higher comparison basis in the corresponding period last year and a significant decrease in both international prices of raw materials and domestic demand, the statement said.
