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%).
