China's annual consumer inflation moderated in April despite strong food price rises, data showed, potentially giving Beijing more scope to loosen policy to help the economy rebound from a first-quarter slowdown in growth.


The April consumer price index (CPI) rose 3.4% year on year, down from the 3.6% pace logged in March.


April retail sales growth is expected to be unchanged from March, at 15.2%.
