October 16 (SeeNews) - Croatia's September consumer price index (CPI) rose by a monthly 1.2%, after rising by 0.6% in August, the State Statistics Bureau said on Tuesday.
Year-on-year, Croatia's consumer price inflation accelerated to 3.9% in September from 2.6% in August. "The annual inflation [in September] was the strongest since June last year," Zdeslav Santic, an analyst with Raiffeisenbank Austria Zagreb, said.
Month-on-month, the most significant generator of consumer prices growth was food which went up 2.8% after unfavourable weather conditions hit agriculture, he added. Another factor was a seasonal rise in the prices of autumn and winter clothing and footwear by 6.1%.
On an annual basis, food prices again marked a significant growth, by 7.1%, while the prices of clothing and footwear increased 4.9%, Santic added.
The consumer prices in September were higher by 3.2% compared to the end of last year.
In the first three quarters, the average annual inflation growth rate was 2.2%, lower than 3.5% last year, RBA said. In the last quarter this year RBA expects the stronger inflation pressure to continue due to higher prices of food, oil products and utilities, with annual growth of some 4.0%. However, it expects that the average annual inflation for the whole of 2007 is to be lower than last year’s 3.2%.
