Latvian Prices Rise at Slowest Pace in 15 Months on Health Care

April 11, 2012

Latvian consumer prices grew at the slowest pace in 15 months in March as the cost of health care, clothes and communications fell.

The inflation rate dropped to 3.3 percent from 3.4 percent the previous month, the statistics office in the capital, Riga, said today on its website. That’s below the 3.1 percent median estimate of five economists in a Bloomberg survey. Consumer prices rose 0.6 percent from February.
