Italy's inflation rate edges up to 0.3% (2)

Rise of 0.1 of a percentage point compared to September

(ANSA) - Rome, October 30 - Italy's annual inflation rate edged up to 0.3% in October, an increase of 0.1 of a percentage point compared to September, Istat said on Friday. The national statistics agency added that its consumer-price index was 0.2% higher in October than in September, according to provisional data. "The slight speed up of the inflation was mainly due to the further increase of prices of unprocessed food (+4.2%, from +3,3% in September 2015) and of services related to recreation, including repair and personal care (+1.5%, from +1.1% in the previous month)," Istat said.
