The Executive Board of the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT) noted at its meeting Monday that the general consumer price index posted a decrease in annual shift from 4.6% in October to 4.3% in November, 2015.
This change is explained by the slowdown in rising prices of manufactured goods (4.4% against 5.3%).
The inflation rate of food products kept the same pace of the previous month, i.e. 3.4%, while services prices went up from 4.8% in October 2015 to 5% in November 2015.
Following these developments, the average inflation rate in the first eleven months of the current year stood at the same level as the one recorded in the same period in 2014, i.e. 4.9%
In terms of core inflation, the rise of prices of products excluding fresh and regulated products reached 5.7% in annual shift in November 2015 against 5.6% in the previous month.
