Hong Kong's consumer prices rose in September
(10-21 19:54)

Consumer prices in Hong Kong rose 6.6 percent last month.
It was the fastest year-on-year increase since last July.
But the administration said the increase was mainly due to the low base of comparison, as the government had paid public housing rentals last September as part of concessions for the poor.
Netting out the effects of the government's one-off relief measures, the year-on-year rate of increase last month was 3.3 percent -- up slightly from the August inflation rate of 3.2 percent. --RTHK
