China’s factory deflation eased back in June as the economic recovery continued, while consumer inflation ticked up.

The decline in the producer price index narrowed to 3% last month from May’s 3.7%, the National Bureau of Statistics said Thursday. The consumer price index rose 2.5% on year following a 2.4% gain the previous month. The statistics bureau earlier published statements dated 2019 which were then withdrawn.
