Hanoi’s consumer price index (CPI) in April is forecast to fall by 0.1
percent against the previous month, according to the Hanoi Industry and
Trade Department.

The forecast is based on the downtrend of essential goods’ prices, particularly foodstuff thanks to the abundant supply.

The department is currently implementing a plan to ensure market
stability, while developing a sale network in suburbs and surrounding
industrial zones as well as stepping up market management to prevent and
fight smuggling and trade frauds in the city.

CPI in March edged down 0.21 percent against the previous month but
rose 2.04 percent and 5.7 percent over last December and over the same
period last year, respectively.-VNA
