Greek import price composite index in the industrial sector grew 1.4 pct in September

Greek import price composite index in the industrial sector grew 1.4 pct in September, compared with the same month in 2015, after a 12.6 pct drop recorded in the 2015-2014 period, Hellenic Statistical Authority said on Monday.

The statistics service, in a monthly report, attributed this development to the so-called imported inflation to a 0.1 pct decline in the import price index from Eurozone states and a 2.8 pct rise in the import price index from countries outside Eurozone. The index was up 1.2 pct in September from August, after a 0.8 pct decline recorded in the same period last year.
