CPI & SBI Outlook June 2016
June 30, 2016 09:21

Consumer prices picked up in May 2016. On a monthly comparison, the headline inflation rate reached 0.24 percent following the deflation of 0.45 percent in April. On an annual basis, however, the inflation rate eased to 3.33 percent yoy. By component, prices in both the foodstuffs component (+0.43 percent MoM) and the non- oodstuffs component (+0.14 percent MoM) rose. The rising inflationary pressures mainly owed to the end of the harvesting season and the approach of Ramadan.

All of the CPI components posted increases. The prepared foods component increased the most (+0.58% mom), followed by the clothing component (+0.44% mom), and the foodstuffs component (+0.30% mom). The medical care component (+0.27% mom) and the transportation component (+0.21% mom) also edged higher, while the education component (+0.03% mom) and the housing component (+0.02% mom) were relatively stable.
