Inflation falls in June


Consumer prices increased by 1.4% y-o-y in June, which translates into a fall of 0.2% in relation to May, the Central Office of Statistics has declared (GUS). The decline in the inflation rate is primarily due to food prices which fell by 1.3% in June. According to Finance Minister, Miroslaw Gronicki, "Data for June confirm that the economy is free of any price pressure tendencies. In July, inflation will equal approximately 1%, and at the end of the year will fall to 0.8-0.9%". Since the beginning of the year, consumer prices rose much more slowly than a year earlier (growth of 0.6% as against 3.5% in 2004).

According to GUS, the highest price growth in the last twelve months has been observed in the following sectors: fuel, education fees, housing and health. On the other hand, the prices of clothing and footwear have fallen the most markedly, by 5.4%.
