December 17, 2014

In November, consumer prices declined 0.1% over the previous month, which contrasted the 0.1% rise tallied in October. The reading mainly reflected lower prices for transport, as well as for food and non-alcoholic beverages and alcoholic beverages and tobacco. Conversely, clothing as well as housing, gas, electricity and water recorded higher prices than the previous month.

The National Bank of Slovakia (NBS) expects inflation to average 0.5% in 2015 and 1.8% in 2016. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants expect HICP inflation to average 1.1% in 2015, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. For 2016, the panel expects HICP inflation to increase to 1.9%.
