Consumer prices in the province of Luanda rose 2.29% in January from the previous month, above December’s 2.17% rise. According to the National Statistical Institute (Instituto Nacional de Estatística), January’s figure reflected a broad-based increase in prices, with a particularly significant uptick in prices for alcoholic beverages and tobacco, education and clothing and footwear.

Inflation edged down from a multi-year high of 41.9% in December to 40.4% in January, while annual average inflation rose from 32.4% in December to 34.3% in January, the highest figure in nearly twelve years.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panel participants expect inflation of 29.6% in 2017, which is unchanged from last month’s projection. For 2018, the panel foresees inflation of 20.5%.
