Philippine annual inflation slows to 0.9% in September

MANILA, Oct 4 (Reuters) - The Philippines' annual headline consumer price index in September rose 0.9% from a year earlier, a lower increase than expected, the statistics agency said on Friday.

That compared with a 1.1% forecast in a Reuters poll and was within the central bank's 0.6%-1.4% forecast for September.
