Slovenia: Inflation slows from February's over three-year high
March 31, 2017
Consumer prices in March increased 0.4% from a month earlier and came in below February’s 1.0% rise. March’s easing was mainly due to lower food prices, while higher prices for clothing and footwear contributed most to the monthly increase.
Inflation dipped to 1.9% in March, down from February’s over three-year high of 2.3%. Meanwhile, harmonized inflation was 2.0% in March and came in below February’s 2.5% reading. The annual average variation in harmonized inflation rose to 0.6% in March from 0.3% a month earlier.
