Consumer price inflation has slowed for the second month in a row.

According to the National Statistical Office, the consumer price index rose 5.6% in September compared to the same month last year.

Inflation showed a steep upward trend from February to July, but the rate of increase slowed in August and also fell 0.1%p from August last month.

This is believed to have had an effect on the slowdown in the growth rate as the growth rate of petroleum products declined due to the drop in international oil prices.

The National Statistical Office predicted that the oil export organization's production cut problem and exchange rate situation are variables, but if the current trend continues, the inflation rate is unlikely to be dampened.
