Slovakia: Inflation inches up in May
June 17, 2015
In May, consumer prices grew 0.3% over the previous month, inching up from the 0.2% increase tallied in April and marking the highest value since January 2013. May’s reading mainly reflected higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages as well as for transport.
Inflation edged up from 0.2% in April to 0.3% in May and marked a six-month high. Meanwhile, the harmonized index of consumer prices grew 0.3% in monthly terms in May (April: +0.3% month-on-month), the highest value in over two years. Annual harmonized consumer prices fell 0.1%, which matched the result tallied in the previous month.
