The annual inflation rate in Poland fell to 1.1 percent in December of 2018 from 1.3 percent in November, matching market expectations. It is the lowest inflation rate since December of 2016, mainly due to a slowdown in cost of transport (4 percent vs 6.1 percent in November) and alcoholic beverages & tobacco (1.4 percent vs 1.7 percent). Also, inflation was flat for housing & utilities (1.9 percent), health (2.9 percent) and education (3 percent) and prices continued to fall for miscellaneous goods & services (-0.1 percent vs -0.2 percent), clothing & footwear (-2.7 percent, the same as in November) and communication (-6.1 percent vs -5.9 percent). On the other hand, cost increased slightly more for food & non-alcoholic beverages (0.9 percent vs 0.7 percent). On a monthly basis, consumer prices were flat, the same as in the previous month and below forecasts of 0.1 percent.
