The Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) released today (January 21) the Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for December 2015. According to the Composite CPI, overall consumer prices rose by 2.5% in December 2015 over the same month a year earlier, slightly larger than the corresponding increase (2.4%) in November 2015. Netting out the effects of all Government's one-off relief measures, the year-on-year rate of increase in the Composite CPI (i.e. the underlying inflation rate) in December 2015 remained virtually unchanged at 2.4% as in November 2015. The slightly larger increase in the Composite CPI was mainly due to the enlarged increases in the prices of fresh vegetables.

Analysed by sub-index, the year-on-year rates of increase in the CPI(A), CPI(B) and CPI(C) were 2.7%, 2.5% and 2.1% respectively in December 2015, which compared to 2.6%, 2.5% and 2.1% respectively in November. Netting out the effects of all Government's one-off relief measures, the year-on-year rates of increase in the CPI(A), CPI(B) and CPI(C) were 2.6%, 2.5% and 2.1% respectively in December 2015, which compared to 2.5%, 2.5% and 2.1% respectively in November.

Amongst the various CPI components, year-on-year increases in prices were recorded in December 2015 for food (excluding meals bought away from home) (4.4% in the Composite CPI and 4.3% in the CPI(A)); meals bought away from home (4.0% in both the Composite CPI and CPI(A)); housing (3.9% in the Composite CPI and 3.6% in the CPI(A)); electricity, gas and water (1.4% in the Composite CPI and 2.1% in the CPI(A)); miscellaneous goods (0.8% in the Composite CPI and 1.3% in the CPI(A)); alcoholic drinks and tobacco (0.7% in the Composite CPI and 0.6% in the CPI(A)); transport (0.3% in the Composite CPI and 1.0% in the CPI(A)) and miscellaneous services (0.3% in the Composite CPI and 0.1% in the CPI(A)).

On the other hand, year-on-year decreases in prices were recorded in December 2015 for durable goods (-5.3% in the Composite CPI and -4.7% in the CPI(A)) as well as clothing and footwear (-1.1% in the Composite CPI and -2.0% in the CPI(A)).

A Government spokesman said that inflation remained moderate in December. For 2015 as a whole, underlying inflation averaged 2.5%, down from 3.5% in 2014, representing continued easing in inflation for the fourth year in a row.

The spokesman commented further that, looking ahead, the upside risks to inflation should remain contained in the near term, as low global inflation amid soft international commodity prices will likely keep external price pressure at bay, and as local cost increases will likely be restrained by the subpar economic conditions.
