Inflation climbs in April

Consumer prices increased 0.29% over the previous month in April, accelerating from the 0.03% rise logged in March. The reading marked the highest increase in prices in four months, and was largely due to higher prices for transport and for housing and utilities. The overall increase was capped by lower prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages.

Inflation jumped to 1.2% in April, markedly up from March’s 0.5%. Meanwhile, the trend pointed up, with annual average inflation coming in at 0.5% in April (March: 0.4%).
