Hungary: Inflation inches up in April

Consumer prices jumped 0.7% month-on-month in April, coming in well above the 0.1% increase observed in March. March’s print was largely driven by higher prices for food, and clothing and footwear.

Inflation inched up from 2.0% in March to 2.1% in April, moving above the lower band of the Central Bank’s target range of 3.0% plus or minus 1.0 percentage point. February was the only month since June 2017 in which inflation fell outside the target band. Annual average inflation in April remained unchanged at 2.2%.

Core consumer prices, which exclude volatile items such as fresh food and fuel, rose 0.6% month-on-month in April, up significantly from March’s subdued 0.1% increase. Lastly, core inflation inched up from March’s 2.4% to 2.5% in April.
