Czech Republic: Inflation stable in October

November 10, 2014

In October, consumer prices rose 0.2% over the previous month, which contrasted the 0.2% decrease registered in September. According to the Czech Statistical Office, October’s increase was due to higher prices for clothing and footwear.
