Hungary's inflation rate could drop into the single digits by October or November, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
"We can see the light at the end of the tunnel," Gulyás said at a talk at the 32nd Balvanyos Summer Free University and Student Camp in Baile Tusnad, Romania.
Hungary's CPI rose 20.1% year-on-year in June, falling for the fifth month in a row after peaking at 25.7% in January.
The government has pledged to bring inflation down to the single digits by year-end.
