Seoul - Xinhua

South Korea\'s consumer price growth slowed to 3.9 percent in October, falling below 4 percent for the first time this year, a government report showed Tuesday. Consumer prices rose by 3.9 percent in October from a year earlier, down from a 4.3 percent on-year gain tallied in the previous month, according to the report by Statistics Korea.

Core consumer prices, which exclude volatile energy and food prices, advanced 3.7 percent on-year in October, but the core consumer inflation dropped 0.2 percent in October from a month before The slowdown in consumer price hike was mainly attributable to a fall in agricultural product prices, according to the report.

Prices for agricultural, dairy and fisheries goods fell 1.7 percent in October from the same period of last year after gaining 2.3 percent on-year in September.
