Inflation forecast: 1.4% in 2018 and 1.8% in 2019
16-02-2018 | STATEC

STATEC maintains its inflation forecast at 1.4% for 2018.

Due to special factors, inflation would slow down compared to 2017 (1.7%) despite a gradual return of inflationary pressures. This return stems from the economic strengthening which has also contributed to the recent increase in oil prices. The next automatic indexation of wages, salaries and pensions is forecasted for the third quarter of 2018.
