November harmonised inflation at 0.2%, Cystat says


By Stelios Orphanides

The harmonised consumer price index rose an annual 0.2 per cent in November mainly on higher prices for energy and services, the statistical service said.

Energy prices rose 3.7 per cent last month compared to November last year, while those for services rose 0.9 per cent, Cystat said. The increase was partially offset by a 0.9 per cent drop in the prices of food, alcoholic beverages and tobacco, and non-energy industrial products.

In January to November, the harmonised inflation rate was 0.8 per cent, Cystat said.

    Almost zero inflation; that’s good. Energy prices are out of Cyprus’ ability to control. They are what they are. Suggestion is given to discontinue mazout in favor of natural gas fired plants to produce cheaper electricity.
