By individual countries, inflation gained pace in Germany, reaching 2.1 percent in August from 1.7 percent in July, while in the United States it advanced to 1.7 percent from 1.4 percent. In Japan, however, consumer prices dipped 0.4 percent in August. Outside the OECD area, annual inflation accelerated in India to 10.3 percent in August from 9.8 percent in July. Inflation also rose in Russia to 5.9 percent from 5.6 percent and in China to 2.0 percent from 1.8 percent, the organisation said.Annual inflation was stable in Brazil from July to August at 5.2 percent and Indonesia at 4.6 percent.
