Switzerland: Inflation softens in September
October 5, 2018
Consumer prices rose 0.1% over the prior month in September, following a flat print in August. September’s uptick was primarily driven by higher prices for clothing and footwear, and fresh vegetables. This was partially offset by lower prices for recreation and culture, and restaurants and hotels.
Inflation meanwhile eased to 1.0% in September from 1.2% in August. Annual average inflation was stable at 0.9% in September.
