Finally! Inflation in February 2019 falls within target at 3.8%
MANILA, Philippines (3rd UPDATE) – After 11 months of settling above the government’s target band, inflation finally slowed down to 3.8% in February, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) announced on Tuesday, March 5. The government aimed to keep the inflation rate within 2% to 4% – a range which analysts said was desirable for developing economies – but failed to do so in 2018. The latest figure was within poll estimates and the 3.7% to 4.5% range projected by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP). It is also lower than the 4.4% inflation rate last January. The PSA said the lower inflation figure was due to the slower annual increases in food and non-alcoholic beverages at 4.7%.
