Vietnam: Inflation stays muted in September

According to the General Statistics Office of Vietnam, consumer prices rose 0.32% in September over the prior month, up from August’s 0.28% increase. September’s reading was driven by higher prices for education services and food—linked to African swine fever and flooding—offset by lower healthcare costs.

Inflation ticked down from 2.3% in August to 2.0% in September, remaining in line with the Central Bank’s target of below 4.0% inflation. Core inflation was stable at 2.0%. Moderate inflation so far this year can largely be attributed to muted oil prices.

Looking ahead, inflation is seen rising somewhat from its current level on strong domestic demand, but nonetheless should stay on target.
