Croatia: Inflation rises further in October
Consumer prices rose 0.94% in October over the previous month, coming in marginally below September’s 0.95% rise which had marked a six-month high. The result largely reflected a continued albeit slower increase in prices for clothing and footwear, as well as higher prices for housing, and food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Inflation came in at 3.8% in October, up from September’s 3.3%. October’s reading was the highest inflation rate since February 2013. As such, the trend continued to point up, with annual average inflation rising to 1.2% in October (September: 0.8%).
