Beijing, Aug 9 - China's consumer price index (CPI), a main gauge of inflation, grew 2.3 percent year-on-year in July, official data showed Saturday.

The growth rate was at the same level as it was during the first half of the year showing that the world's second-largest economy has witnessed stable prices so far, Xinhua quoted the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) as saying.
