Inflation at record low since 1989

May inflation was 3.2 per cent above that in May 2001, the lowest annualised increase in prices since the end of communism in the region in 1989. The rate was influenced by cheaper world oil prices, as well as delayed increases in regulated prices, which cabinet has put off until next year. The central bank’s full-year inflation goal is 3.5-4.9 per cent.
