Albania’s harmonized index of consumer prices (HICP) rose by 1.6% year-on-year in January, after adding 1.4% in December, the country’s Institute of Statistics (Instat) says.

On a monthly comparison basis, HICP rose by 2.5% in January, after increasing by 1% in the previous month. Albania’s non-harmonized consumer price inflation accelerated to 1.5% year-on-year in January, from 1.1% in December, the Tirana-based institute said earlier this month, Instat said on February 20
