Slovenia: Inflation falls for the fifth consecutive month in June
June 30, 2017
Consumer prices were flat in June from the previous month, contrasting May’s 0.7% rise. While the prices for recreation and culture, and communications saw a marked increase, they were offset largely by a decline in clothing and footwear, and transport.
Inflation came in at 0.9% in June, down from 1.5% in May and marked a six-month low. Meanwhile, harmonized consumer prices swung from May’s 0.7% month-on-month rise to a 0.1% fall in June. Harmonized inflation fell to 0.9% in June, from May’s 1.5%. Annual average harmonized inflation remained at previous month’s 0.9% in June.
