Consumer price index rises 0.4% in December 2016

The consumer price index rose by 0.4% in the month of December 2016, compared with the month of November of the same year.

This rise is due, according to the INS, to the increase in prices of the food and drink group by 0.7%, due to higher prices of certain food products on the occasion of the celebration of Mawlid Feast the Year End.

Similarly, the clothing and footwear group continued its upward trend (1.2% in December 2016), due to the 1.3% increase in the shoe price index and the 1 % growth in winter clothing index.
