Ethiopia's annual inflation rate quickened for a fourth straight month to 30.4% in August of 2021, its highest level since March of 2012. Inflation has been fuelled by a supply-side shortage, as a result of the conflict between federal forces and troops from the northern Tigray region that erupted in November and has spread into the neighboring Afar and Amhara regions. Annual food inflation accelerated to 37.6% in August from 32% the previous month as the cost of items from bread to rice spiked. source: Central Statistical Agency of Ethiopia

Ethiopia Inflation at Near-Decade High
Ethiopia's annual inflation rate quickened for a fourth straight month to 30.4% in August of 2021, its highest level since March of 2012. Inflation has been fuelled by a supply-side shortage, as a result of the conflict between federal forces and troops from the northern Tigray region that erupted in November and has spread into the neighboring Afar and Amhara regions. Annual food inflation accelerated to 37.6% in August from 32% the previous month as the cost of items from bread to rice spiked.

Ethiopia Inflation Rate Hits 7-Month High
The annual inflation rate in Ethiopia climbed to 20.6% in February of 2021 from 19.2% in the previous month. It was the highest inflation rate since last July, driven largely by persistently high food prices amid the pandemic crisis, political instability and the locust infestation experienced in some parts of the country. Other factors such as the mounting debt stress engendered by the high level of government borrowing from both domestic and external sources, as well as uncertainty ahead of presidential elections are also likely to have contributed to inflationary pressures.
