Inflation Rate in Laos
Inflation fell to 39.9% in April (March: 41.0%). The headline rate should cool further from current levels in 2023 on a high base effect and lower imported price pressures. That said, the depreciation of the kip and still-high fuel and fertilizer prices will keep inflation elevated. Stronger-than-expected domestic activity and commodity-price volatility pose upside risks.
