Czech Republic: Inflation remains at Central Bank's target in December

January 10, 2019

Consumer prices rose 0.1% from the previous month in December, rebounding from November’s 0.1% dip. Data released by the Czech Statistical Office (CSO) revealed that December’s uptick was largely due to higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Meanwhile, inflation was unchanged at November’s 2.0% in December. As a result, it remained at the midpoint of the Central Bank’s 1.0%–3.0% tolerance band. Similarly, annual average inflation remained stable at 2.2% for the third consecutive month in December.
