Denmark: Inflation rises in June but remains muted
Consumer prices increased a seasonally-adjusted 0.10% over the previous month in June, contrasting the 0.10% fall recorded in May. June’s result was the sharpest increase in prices since February. The rebound was driven by greater price pressures for housing and utilities, transportation, and food and non-alcoholic beverages.
Inflation came in at 0.3% in June, contrasting May’s flat reading. Annual average inflation remained at May’s 0.5% in June. Lastly, core inflation ticked up to 0.9% from the previous month’s 0.7%.
Looking ahead, price pressures are seen picking up slightly, but soft economic activity and continuing low oil prices will keep inflation low nonetheless.
