EU-harmonised inflation down to 2.4 percent in February

Inflation in Slovakia, calculated according to the unified EU methodology, decelerated in February 2009 by 0.3 percentage points to 2.4 percent, the Statistics Office said on March 16. The expectations of analysts have been met after figures published last week showed that inflation measured according to national methodology fell by the same number of percentage points to 3.1 percent, the TASR newswire wrote. Clothing and footwear, food, non-alcoholic beverages, transport, recreation and culture contributed to the fall in inflation while prices in hotels, cafes and restaurants, and healthcare increased above the average.
