Portugal Inflation Rate Edges Up to 0.5% in April


Consumer prices in Portugal increased 0.5 percent year-on-year in April of 2016 following a 0.4 percent rise in the previous month.

Year-on-year, prices of food and non-alcoholic beverages increased 0.1 percent, following a 0.7 percent decline in March and posting the first rise in three months. In addition, prices of housing and utilities (0.62 percent from 0.69 percent in March) and recreation and culture (1.99 percent from 1.77 percent in March) increased at a faster pace and transport prices fell less (-0.9 percent, following a 1.4 percent drop in the previous month).
