TAKE A LOOK-Asia inflation: China, India inflation pick up to 7-mth highs

Mon Oct 14, 2013 1:14pm IST

China's annual consumer inflation rate rose to a seven-month high of 3.1 percent
in September as poor weather drove up food prices, limiting the scope for the
central bank to manoeuvre to support the economy even as exports showed a
surprise decline.
    But few analysts expect a further sharp rise in inflation or policy
tightening in coming months as the world's second-largest economy still faces a
weak global environment and Beijing tries to tap the brake on credit-fuelled
investment.
    India's headline inflation also unexpectedly hit a seven-month high in
September, mainly driven by higher food prices, increasing the odds for yet
another interest rate hike by the central bank at its policy review later this
month.
