–The national average core consumer price index (excluding fresh food) rose 0.3% on year in September, slowing from 0.5% in August but in line with an MNI survey, recording a 33nd straight year-on-year rise.

–The decelerating inflation rate was caused mainly by lower energy costs, which fell 1.9% on year in September, quicker than August’s 0.3% drop.

–Overall CPI rose 0.2% on year in September, also slowing from 0.3% in August.

–The underlying inflation rate measured by the core-core CPI (excluding fresh food and energy) rose 0.5% on year in September (vs +0.6% in August), indicating that corporate price hikes pushed by higher costs are limited. It was the 27th consecutive year-on-year rise.

–Prices for overseas holiday tours dropped 2.8% y/y in September, down from +4.1% in August. Prices for household durable goods were up 6.0% on year in September, accelerating from +5.4% in August.
