VTV.vn - The consumer price index (CPI) in October increased by 0.41% from the previous month.

This was largely driven by the impact of the storms and historic floods in northern and central Vietnam in early September.

According to the General Statistics Office (GSO), there were price hikes in all of the 11 main baskets of goods and services.

The highest growth was reported in medicine and healthcare with 2.14%, followed by fuels (1.44%), housing and construction materials (0.63%), transport (0.61%), food and catering services (0.31%), and education (0.19%).

Total average CPI for the first 10 months of 2017 shows an annual increase of 3.71%.
