HA NOI (Biz Hub) —  The consumer price index (CPI) in Ha Noi continued to rise in June, the sixth consecutive month of growth, the municipal Statistics Office (GSO) reported on June 22.

Nine out of 11 groups of commodities posted price increases with the biggest rise seen in transportation services, mainly due to the price hike in petrol and oil.

Petrol, diesel and kerosene prices rose by VND680, VND168 and VND200 per litre, respectively.

The group of housing, electricity, water, fuel and building materials also posted a high growth due to higher demand in the summer.

The group of restaurants and catering services showed a smaller increase compared with the previous month.

Gold price saw a rise of 0.69 per cent in June and the VND/USD exchange rate was up 0.78 per cent against last month.

Other groups of commodities either remained stable or experienced a slight price change. — VNS
