Su Jian, director of the national economic research center of Peking University, pointed out in an interview with the client of Sino Singapore Jingwei that the prices of pork and eggs will drop in the later period and the rising trend will not continue. At present, there are two reasons for the rise of egg price. On the one hand, around July every year is the dormant period of chicken, and the egg production is low, and the rise of egg price is a seasonal rise; on the other hand, driven by the rise of pork price, the equivalence of eggs, beef and mutton as substitutes for pork has increased to varying degrees. In the later stage, with the decline of pork price, the price of eggs will also decline.
Will CPI rise in the future?
Li Qilin, chief economist of YueKai securities and President of the Research Institute, predicts that CPI will enter the downward channel again on a year-on-year basis. Starting from August, the tail of CPI will obviously weaken. There is limited room for pork prices to continue to rise. The year-on-year decline of pig production narrowed, and the number of live pigs increased month on month for three consecutive quarters. After two consecutive months of price increases in June and July, it is unlikely that pork prices will continue to rise sharply. The influence of flood and waterlogging in South China gradually subsided. According to the analysis of the article, looking forward to the following months, in the case of a sharp rise in the base last year, the year-on-year growth rate of CPI is still a probable event, and the epidemic situation, weather conditions and pork price trend will still be the fluctuation factors in the overall downward trend of CPI. The financial research center of Bank of communications pointed out that the current expansion of CPI is mainly caused by seasonal factors, and food prices may fall significantly with the weakening of seasonal factors in the future. After August, the impact of the flood on agricultural production and logistics transportation will be weakened, and the prices of vegetables and pork may gradually fall. CPI will return to the downward trend after a short-term rebound year-on-year, and there is no inflationary pressure.
