The year-on-year headline inflation rate went up to 2.7 percent in September from 2.1 percent in August. According to the National Statistic Office (NSO) this was due to a higher annual increment in the heavily-weighted food and non-alcoholic beverages index primarily brought about the uptrend. Faster annual increases in the indices of alcoholic beverages and tobacco; housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels; and health were also noticed during the month. Likewise, core annual inflation rate rose to 2.3 percent in September from 1.9 percent in August.
