Tunisia’s consumer price index increased again in July 2015, according to the latest figures from National Institute of Statistics (INS).
The price index went up 0.3% between June and July of the current year.
According to the INS, this increase was due to a 1.2% rise in clothing prices and 1.2% growth in shoes on the occasion of the Eid El-Fitr.
The Tunisian Ministry of Trade has managed to control food prices with decreases of 3.1% for egg prices, 0.6% for poultry, 0.5% for fruits, 0.4% for vegetables and even 0.1% for beef.
For the rest, these are small increases, but which accumulation resulted in the small increase in price index, despite the drop in inflation. The latter stood at 4.2% against 5.7% a month earlier.
