  CPI rises moderately and can keep running smoothly this year

  In 2021, the city's consumer price (CPI) and industrial producer price (PPI) will both increase by 1.1% over the previous year.

According to the different circumstances of the two data, Bian Jing, deputy head of the Beijing Survey Team of the National Bureau of Statistics, believes that consumer prices are rising moderately, while industrial producer prices continue to rise.

  Bian Jing introduced that from 2017 to 2020, the increase of Beijing's CPI was between 1.7% and 2.5%, which was higher than the 1.1% increase in 2021.

Structurally, the prices of food, tobacco, alcohol, education, culture and entertainment have risen, but the rise has declined.

  He believes that the CPI can maintain stable operation, mainly supported by two factors.

First, the government's policy of ensuring supply and stabilizing prices has been effective, and the prices of daily necessities have remained stable.

Food prices fell by 1% throughout the year. Among them, pork prices fell by 31.1% due to favorable factors such as the recovery of live pig production capacity.

Second, the service industry, which was more affected by the epidemic, gradually recovered, and prices rose moderately.

  Regarding the price trend in Beijing this year, Bian Jing said that with the overall improvement of the supply-side production situation, the supply and demand of consumer goods and services are basically balanced.

At the same time, in order to ensure the market stability during the Spring Festival and Winter Olympics, the government has also stepped up its dispatching efforts, which has the foundation to maintain the stable operation of prices.
