Finally, consumer prices increased 0.20% over the previous month in April, picking up from March’s 0.06% increase. April’s uptick was the highest reading since September 2022.

Commenting on the outlook, analysts at the EIU said:

“Twelve-month consumer price inflation will slow from an estimated 3.7% in December 2022 to 1.1% at end-2023. Supply-side pressures that built up during 2022 are easing as global demand cools and supply chains are repaired. However, global commodity markets will remain especially sensitive to one-off shocks in major producers, such as drought, flooding and natural disasters, the effects of which could pass through to the domestic economy quickly.”
