China's consumer price inflation stood at 2.5 percent year-on-year in October 2018, unchanged from the previous month's seven-month high and in line with market expectations. A slowdown in prices of food was offset by a faster rise in cost of non-food products. On a monthly basis, consumer prices went up 0.2 percent in October, easing from a 0.7 percent advance in September and also matching market consensus. Inflation Rate in China averaged 5.21 percent from 1986 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 28.40 percent in February of 1989 and a record low of -2.20 percent in April of 1999.
