Hungary: Inflation edges up in March

Consumer prices rose 0.1% month-on-month in March, coming in below the 0.2% increase observed in February. March’s print was mostly driven by higher prices for clothing and footwear.

Inflation inched up from 1.9% in February to 2.0% in March, thereby reaching the lower band of the Central Bank’s target range of 3.0% plus or minus 1.0 percentage point. February was the first month since June 2017 in which inflation fell outside the target band. Annual average inflation in March remained unchanged at 2.2%.
