Slovenia: Decrease in consumer prices accelerates in April

April 30, 2015

Consumer prices rose 0.1% in April over the previous month, decelerating from the 0.9% increase tallied in March. The monthly reading mostly reflected an increase in the prices of garments and footwear as well as fruits which more than offset a decrease in prices of packaged holidays and petroleum.

Annual consumer prices fell 0.7% in April, which followed the 0.3% decline tallied in March. Meanwhile, annual harmonized consumer prices fell 0.7% as well, following the 0.4% decrease observed in the previous month. Annual average HICP was flat in April, inching down from the 0.1% increase recorded in March.

The Central Bank expects HICP inflation to average 0.7% in 2015. FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast participants expect HICP inflation to average 0.3% in 2015, which is down 0.2 percentage points over the previous month’s forecast. In 2016, the panel expects HICP inflation to accelerate to 1.3%.
