Inflation has slipped to a four-month lowThe National Bureau of Statistics also said in a statement that over the first eight months of the year the consumer price index — a main gauge of inflation — rose 2.2 percent year on year. The figures come at a time of concern over China’s economy as the effects of mini-stimulus measures this year to prop up slowing growth have waned and fears of a bust in the property sector intensify.
