Belarus: Inflation eases in January

February 11, 2016

In January, consumer prices rose 1.9% over the previous month, which was above December’s 1.2% rise and marked the largest increase in one year. According to the National Statistical Committee, the acceleration was driven by faster growth in prices for non-food goods and services.

Inflation eased in January, falling from December’s 12.0% to 11.4%. Annual average inflation also moderated, tallying 13.1% (December: 13.5%). The core consumer price index—which strips out prices for more volatile goods, such as seasonal products and government regulated goods—rose 1.5% in January over the previous month (December: +0.8% month-on-month).

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants see inflation at 14.0% in 2016, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. In 2017, panelists expect inflation of 12.1%.
