Kosovo Inflation Rate at 0.60 percent
Consumer prices in Kosovo rose 0.6 percent year-on-year in September of 2016, after being flat in the previous month. It was the highest inflation rate since October of 2014, mainly driven by rising cost of housing and utilities (+0.4 percent from -3.6 percent in August) and transport (+0.6 percent from -1.3 percent). Also, prices fell at a slower pace for food and non-alcoholic beverages (-0.3 percent from -0.7 percent). On a monthly basis, prices rose 0.2 percent.
