Taiwan's consumer prices edged up 0.11 percent in July from a year ago as costlier school fees offset declines in food prices, the Taipei Times reported. The consumer price index (CPI) was down 0.30 per cent from a month earlier largely due to lower prices for discount clothes, the Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics reported. Clothing prices dropped 5.6 per cent in July from June as retailers offered discounts to attract customers.
