Statistics Indonesia: Inflation Recorded at 0.26% in February 2014
On Monday (03/03, Statistics Indonesia announced that inflation in Indonesia stood at 0.26 percent in February 2014. The largest inflationary pressures in this month were caused by higher prices of instant food products, drinks, cigarettes and tobacco. The country's February inflation rate was much lower than the 1.07 percent inflation recorded in the previous month (which was brought on by severe floods that disrupted distribution networks). Year-on-year (yoy) inflation eased to 7.75 percent from 8.22 percent in January 2014.
