Latvian August Inflation Rate Unchanged From July at 1.7%
Latvian consumer prices rose 1.7 percent from a year earlier in August, matching July’s 21-month low, as food and transport costs advanced.
Prices fell 0.3 percent from the previous month, the statistics office, based in the capital, Riga, said today on its website. The annual rate was less than the 1.9 percent median estimate of six economists in a Bloomberg survey.
