Inflation in Malaysia

Inflation moderates in November
In November consumer prices rose 0.25% over the previous month, up from October’s 0.17% increase. The print was driven by strong price increases for alcoholic beverages and tobacco, which offset slower price increases in the three biggest components: Food and non-alcoholic beverages; housing, water, electricity gas and other fuels; and transport.
Inflation, meanwhile, eased from 0.6% in October to 0.2% in November and annual average inflation edged down from 1.5% in October to 1.2% in November. Core inflation—which excludes certain types of fresh food and administered prices of goods and services—increased to 0.5% in November from 0.4% in October.
FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect inflation to average 2.1% in 2019 and 2.3% in 2020.
