Czech Republic: Inflation accelerates in November

December 9, 2016

In November, consumer prices in the Czech Republic grew 0.3% from the previous month, matching October’s reading. According to the Czech Statistical Office, the print mainly reflected an increase in prices for clothing and footwear as well as for transport.

Inflation edged up in November, increasing to an over three-year high of 1.5% from October’s 0.8%. Consequently, inflation moved into the Czech National Bank’s (CNB) target range of 1.0% to 3.0%. Annual average inflation in November was 0.5%, up from October’s 0.4%.

The CNB expects average inflation of 0.4% for 2016 and of 1.9% for 2017.
