„The annual dynamic of the core inflation rate (2 per cent) and the alimentary products prices inflation (1,9 per cent) reportedly exercised the most impact on the annual inflation rate,” Moldova.org reports. The core inflation rate constituted 6,7 per cent in September, so it decreased by 0,8 per cent m/m.

The portal claims „the biggest threats to Moldova’s inflation rate are still the weak economic activity in the Eurozone and in Russia, the biggest commercial partners, the high volatility of the financial markets, the evolution of oil prices associated with uncertainty regarding the price of raw materials and food products.”
