    [03] Greek inflation eases to 3.3 percent in August, yr/yr

    08/09/2003 23:32:22

    Greece's annual inflation, measured by the consumers' price index, fell to 3.3 percent in August from 3.6 percent in July, the National Statistics Service said on Monday.

    NSS, in its monthly report, said that the inflation rate was 3.5 percent in August 2002.

    The consumer price index was unchanged in August from July, after recording a 0.2 percent increase in the same period last year.

    Harmonised inflation was running at 3.3 percent in August compared with the same month in 2002, the the core inflation (excluding volatile fuel and fresh produce prices) fell to 3.0 percent in August from 3.8 percent in August 2002.

    NSS's secretary-general, Nikos Karavitis, commenting on the August inflation figures said he did not exclude a further fall in inflation over the next few months as fresh produce prices were steadily falling.

    The August CPI figure reflected a 5.6 percent increase in food and non-alcohol drinks' prices, a 4.8 percent rise in hotel, coffee, restaurant prices, a 4.6 percent increase in education prices, a 3.6 percent increase in transport prices and price rises of 3.3 percent and 3.0 percent, respectively in services and housing. Communication prices, however, fell 3.6 percent in August.
