Vietnam: Inflation falls to over five-year low in December

Consumer prices rose 0.10% from the previous month in December, contrasting the 0.01% fall logged in November. Looking at the details of the release, the reading was driven by rising prices for transportation.

Inflation eased to 0.2% in December, below November’s 1.5%. December’s reading represented the lowest inflation rate since October 2015 and the fifth month in a row of falling inflation. Consequently, annual average inflation fell to 3.2% in December from 3.7% in November.

Looking ahead, our panelists see inflation picking up somewhat from the current low level. Nevertheless, the State Bank of Vietnam should continue to have room to adopt an accommodative monetary stance and cut rates further if required to support the economy.
