Singapore: Inflation picks up in June

Consumer prices increased 0.1% over the previous month in June, down from May’s 0.6% increase. According to data released by Statistics Singapore, June’s rise in prices was primarily driven by higher prices for food and recreation and culture.

Finally, the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s (MAS) core inflation measure, which omits the costs of accommodation and private road transport, rose from 1.5% in May to 1.7% in June. The uptick came on faster food and services inflation.
