Low inflation in November
Maputo, 9 Dec (AIM) - The National Statistics Institute (INE) announced on 9 December that the rate of inflation in Mozambique in November, as measured by the consumer price indices for the three largest cities (Maputo, Nampula and Beira), was 0.36 per cent.

For much of this year, prices fell slightly, but resumed an upwards trend in October.

Prices rose in the first four months of the year – by 0.98 per cent in January, 0.39 per cent in February, 0.91 per cent in March and 0.12 per cent in April. Then inflation turned into deflation and prices began to fall – by 0.38 per cent in May, 0.52 per cent in June, by 0.04 per cent in July, 0.55 per cent in August, and 0.17 per cent in September.

In October, prices rose slightly, by 0.13 per cent, and in November inflation gathered pace with a rise of 0.36 per cent.

The result is that accumulated inflation over the year – from 1 January to 30 November – stands at 1.21 per cent. Over the past 12 months (December 2013 to November 2014) inflation was 1.79 per cent.

In November, the overall price of food and non-alcoholic drinks, the largest category in the basket of goods and services used to calculate the consumer price index, rose by 0.32 per cent. There was a very slight rise (0.03 per cent) in transport costs. In all other categories, the price shifts were negligible.

The most significant food price rises were for fish (both fresh and dried), tomatoes, coconuts, lettuce and dried prawns.

Prices rose in all three cities – by 0.46 per cent in Maputo, 0.74 per cent in Beira, and 0.12 per cent in Nampula.

At this rate, it seems likely that Mozambique will end the year with an inflation rate of under two per cent.
