Slovenia: Inflation rises in March
March 29, 2019
Consumer prices rose 0.7% from the previous month in March, after increasing 0.8% month-on-month in February. The monthly deceleration was driven by marginally lower prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages, compared with the previous month. Meanwhile, harmonized consumer prices increased 0.7% month-on-month in March, matching February’s result.
Inflation rose to 1.6% in March (February: 1.2%), while harmonized inflation increased at the same pace (March: 1.6%; February: 1.3%). Annual average harmonized inflation, meanwhile, matched February’s 1.9% reading.
