EU-harmonised inflation reached 3.7 percent year-on-year in June, 0.3 percentage points higher than the figure recorded in May, the Slovak Statistics Office (ŠÚ) announced on Monday, July 16.

Meanwhile, Slovak-harmonised inflation averaged 4.1 percent in the year to June, the same level as that recorded in May, the TASR newswire reported, citing the ŠÚ. Month-on-month developments were most strongly affected by rises in the prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages, by miscellaneous goods and services, and by education. Conversely, prices for transport exerted a downward influence, as did the prices of alcoholic beverages, tobacco and health care.
