The annual inflation rate in Poland eased to 16.2% in March from an over 26-year high of 18.4% in February, preliminary estimates from the Warsaw-based Central Statistical Office (GUS) showed on Friday.
This was the softest reading since last August, though still well above the central bank's mid-point target of 2.5%.
Prices remained elevated for food & non-alcoholic beverages (+24%) and utilities (+26%), while rising slightly for fuels (+0.2%).
On a monthly comparison basis, consumer prices advanced by 1.1% in March, after a 1.2% increase in February.
