The prices of goods and services as measured by EU methodology rose by 3.5 percent year-on-year in February, up from the 3.2 percent rate seen a month earlier, Slovakia's Statistics Office announced on Wednesday, March 16.
National methodology put inflation at 3.3 percent on an annual basis in February, the TASR newswire wrote. The rise was mainly fuelled by the increasing prices of food and alcohol-free beverages, which saw an annual mark-up of 6.5 percent in February. The prices of housing, water, power and fuels, went up by 6 percent on an annual basis.
