Slovenia: Inflation slows in April
April 28, 2017
Consumer prices in April increased 0.3% from a month earlier and came in slightly below March’s 0.4% rise. April’s easing was mainly due to lower food prices, while higher prices for clothing and footwear contributed most to the monthly increase.
Inflation inched down to 1.8% in April, which was down from March’s 1.9% and marked a three-month low. Meanwhile, harmonized inflation was 1.7% in April and came in below March’s 2.0% reading. Moreover, annual average harmonized inflation rose to 0.8% in April from 0.6% a month earlier.
