Meanwhile, annual harmonized consumer prices fell 0.6% in August, following the 0.7% decrease observed in the previous month. Annual average HICP fell 0.4% in August, matching July’s result.

The Central Bank expects HICP inflation to average minus 0.1% in 2015. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants expect HICP inflation to average 0.2% in 2015, which is unchanged over the previous month’s forecast. In 2016, the panel expects HICP inflation to accelerate to 1.3%.
