On Friday (02/05), Statistics Indonesia announced that Indonesia recorded deflation of 0.02 percent in April 2014. This outcome is in line with analysts' previous forecasts. The months April and May usually bring deflation or low inflation to Indonesia due to the traditional peak of the harvest season. The annual inflation rate of Indonesia has now eased to 7.25 percent (year-on-year) in April 2014, while calender year inflation declined slightly to 1.39 percent. Of the 82 Indonesian cities, 39 experienced deflation.
