Mozambique once again recorded double-digit inflation in February, reaching a figure of 10.3 percent, according to the latest data from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) bulletin, drawn up by the National Statistics Institute (INE).
The year-on-year inflation figure represents an acceleration in price rises compared to January (9.78%).
Even so, the figures are still below the inflation recorded for 2022, a year in which prices rose by 10.91% compared to 2021.
In February, according to INE, food and non-alcoholic beverages were once again the products that contributed most to price rises.
Some vegetables serve as an example: cabbage rose 16.5% compared to the same month last year and the price of tomatoes rose 11.7%.
The IPC bulletin collects data to calculate inflation in eight Mozambican cities: Maputo, Beira, Nampula, Quelimane, Tete, Chimoio, Xai-xai and Inhambane.
