Taiwan's consumer price index (CPI) for January rose 0.76 percent from a year earlier to 103.19 (base year 2011), largely on the back of more expensive fruit prices and the price hike on goods and on services during Chinese New Year, the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS) said Thursday. The core CPI after subtracting out the volatile vegetable, fruit, and energy prices increased 0.95 percent.

Meanwhile the wholesale price index (WPI) rose 0.63 percent from previous month and up 0.42 percent from last year. Seasonally adjusted CPI and WPI climbed 0.1 percent and 0.34 percent respectively from previous month.
