Indonesia records 2.68 percent January inflation using new formula

first_img“We included prices in the ride-hailing sector, for instance, but excluded items that were no longer [relevant],” he said at a press conference on Monday in Jakarta.The different components used in the calculation, however, did not significantly affect this year’s inflation rate compared to previous years, he added.Indonesia’s monthly inflation was 0.32 percent in January 2019. The CPI was calculated at 0.39 percent in January 2020, with core inflation of 2.88 percent.“The main cause of the inflation in January 2020 was the increased price of chilies, fish and tobacco, despite the decrease in the price of flight tickets and fuel,” said Suhariyanto. He added that the government’s decision to lower the price of fuel and flight tickets had contributed to deflation in January.
