Croatia's consumer prices increased by 8.9% year-on-year in April, from 10.7% in the previous month, the Zagreb-based Croatian Bureau of Statistics (Crostat) said on Tuesday, slightly raising its first estimates.

This reading came slightly above the preliminary estimates of 8.8% but was the lowest since March 2022, as prices eased for all the categories, namely food, beverages & tobacco (14.0% vs 15.4% in March 2023), non-food industrial goods without energy (8.8% vs 9.7%), services (7.8% vs 8.2%), and energy (1.4% vs 7.4%).

On a monthly level, consumer prices added 0.9% in March.

Measured by the harmonized index of consumer prices (HICP), in April compared to April 2022, the prices of goods and services for personal consumption increased by 8.9% on average, while compared to March they increased by 1.2%.
