Vietnam money-no rate change seen despite rising prices

The government’s statistics office said on Monday the consumer price index rose 1.74% in January from December, and 12.17% from a year earlier, the highest annual reading since February 2009. December’s annual inflation rate stood at 11.75%, and monthly inflation hit 1.98%.
