China's annual inflation cooled sharply to a 20-month low of 3.2 percent in February as food price pressures eased after the Lunar New Year holiday, giving Beijing room to loosen monetary policy if needed.

A vendor sits next to piles of packaged Chinese cabbages as he waits for customers at a market in Hefei, Anhui province December 9, 2011. China's annual inflation rate tumbled in November to 4.2 percent, the lowest level in more than a year, fuelling expectations of further monetary policy easing to combat deteriorating domestic and international economic conditions. The rate has dropped rapidly since hitting a three-year high of 6.5 percent in July and is now at a pace closer to the full-year government target for 2011 of 4 percent.

A cabbage seller smokes a cigarette as he waits for customers at a fruit and vegetable market in Beijing in this December 17, 2010 picture. China's inflation soared past forecasts to a 28-month high in November and showed signs of spreading beyond food prices, putting pressure on the government to tighten monetary policy. But the country's chief banking regulator said last week that China will be able to keep a grip on inflation next year, but will have a harder time in coping with hot money inflows fanned by loose polices in the West.

A vendor selling cabbages sits in the back of his truck as he waits for customers at an outdoor fruit and vegetable market located on the outskirts of Beijing December 17, 2010. China's inflation soared past forecasts to a 28-month high in November and showed signs of spreading beyond food prices, putting pressure on the government to tighten monetary policy. China is striding into an era where higher inflation will become a more permanent feature of its economic landscape, a shift that the government, long assumed to have zero tolerance for rising prices, is showing signs of accepting.
