Belarus: Inflation decelerates in March

March 10, 2019

Consumer prices increased 0.4% over the previous month in March, decelerating from February’s 1.3% print. The result reflected slightly higher prices for food and non-food goods, and steady prices for services.

Inflation decelerated to 5.8% in March (February: 6.2%), moving closer to the Central Bank’s 5.0% target. Meanwhile, annual average inflation matched February’s result (March: 5.1%).

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants project inflation will average 5.8% in 2019, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast, and 5.9% in 2020.
