The headline consumer price index (CPI) in Dec fell 0.1 from the previous month. Excluding the food and energy components, the core CPI increased by 0.2% – see table 1. Year-on-year, the headline CPI and core CPI rose by 1.9% and 2.2% respectively – see figure 1. For the whole of 2018, the inflation rate was 2.4%, up from 2.1% in 2017. Looking ahead, the headline CPI is expected to moderate due to lower oil prices, while the pickup in wage growth should continue to hold up the core CPI.
