May 16, 2018
Consumer prices rose 0.7% from the previous month in April, accelerating slightly from March’s 0.6% rise. According to the Croatian Bureau of Statistics (CBS), April’s increase was largely driven by higher prices for clothing and footwear, and transport.
Inflation picked up from 1.1% in March to 1.3% in April, the highest reading in five months. Meanwhile, annual average inflation remained stable from March at 1.1%.
