Commerce: April inflation 2.42%

- +

Rising food prices pushed headline inflation to 2.42% in April, permanent secretary for commerce Watcharee Wimuktayon said on Wednesday. 

Mrs Watcharee said headline inflation last month was up 2.42% year-on-year and 0.16% month-on-month due to higher prices of food and beverages. In the first four months of 2013, headline inflation rate was 2.92% year-on-year.

However, the strengthening baht caused inflation to rise at a slower pace, she said.
