The strongest upward push on annual inflation in January came from an 11.8% rise in the food and non-alcoholic beverages group, followed by transport with a 6.9% rise.
On a monthly comparison basis, HICP edged up 1.1% in January, after increasing by 0.4% in December.
Albania's non-harmonized consumer price inflation increased by an annual 7.2% in January, after rising by 7.4% the previous month, the statistics agency said earlier this month.
