- +

Inflation in June hit a 43-month low as government measures and subsidies held down prices, while fresh food prices returned to normal with better weather. 

Commerce Ministry figures showed inflation based on 450 consumer items slowed for a sixth straight month in June, with prices rising 2.25% from the same month a year earlier _ down from 2.3% in May, 2.4% in April and 3.6% in December, when the rate was its highest since November 2011.

For the first six months, consumer prices were up 2.7% from the same period last year, said Vatchari Vimooktayon, the commerce permanent secretary, which was mild compared to the ministry's forecast of 2.8-3.4%.
