Inflation edges up to 0.2% in November, says Istat

Barely above disinflationary levels seen in summer

(ANSA) - Rome, November 28 - Italy's annual inflation rate edged up slightly to 0.2% in November, national statistics agency Istat said Friday. But while the rate rose compared with November 2013, it fell 0.2% compared with October and is far below the 2% rate of inflation that policymakers say indicates an economy operating at a healthy rate of growth. Meanwhile, the agency said the EU's harmonized index of consumer prices (HICP) fell by 0.3% in November compared with the previous month but rose by 0.2% with respect to November 2013.
