Poland’s consumer price inflation eased for the first time since the beginning of the year in September, final data from the Warsaw-based Central Statistical Office (GUS) showed on Tuesday.
The consumer price index (CPI) climbed 2.6% year-on-year in September, after a 2.9% rise in August. This was in line with the initial estimate. Inflation slowed for the first time since January, when it was 0.7%.
Prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages grew 6.3% annually in September, while those of restaurants and hotels, as well as education costs, rose 5.2%. Prices of transport, and of clothing and footwear, declined 1.7% and 1.2%, respectively.
On a monthly basis, consumer prices remained unchanged in September. The initial estimate was a 0.1% fall, GUS says.
