Dominican Republic: Inflation rises further in August

September 10, 2020

Consumer prices rose 0.78% over the prior month in August, down from July’s 1.88% rise. August’s reading was driven by significantly higher food and transport prices.

Inflation rose from 4.3% in July to 4.8% in August, but remained within the Bank’s 3.0%–5.0% target range. Core inflation—which excludes volatile items such as certain types of food, fuel and administered prices—was up from 4.1% to 4.2%.

Our panelists see inflation ending 2020 at 1.8%, which is up 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast, and 2021 at 3.0%.
