     CONSUMER PRICE INDEX
     China's Consumer Price Index rose 1.9% year-on-year in October, above the
MNI survey median forecast for a 1.8% rise  and higher than the 1.6% rise in
September.  The October rate was the highest since January this year (2.5%). 
     Food prices fell 0.4% y/y in October, the ninth decline in a row, following
a 1.4% y/y drop in September. 
     Non-food prices rose 2.4% year-on-year in October, the same rise posted in
September. 
     The CPI slowed to +0.1% m/m last month after a 0.5% gain in September. CPI

1.0% gain the month before. October PPI has risen m/m for four consecutive
months.
