MNI BRIEF: Eurozone Inflation Slows Again To 4.3% in Sept
Headline and core eurozone inflation slow in September, with headline now at 4.3%.
Eurozone inflation continued to slow in September, with the headline number dipping to 4.3%, the slowest rate since October 2021. Last month, headline inflation stood at 5.2%.
The core rate, closely watched by ECB policymakers, also slowed again in September, falling to 4.5% from 5.3% last month. The two rates were largely in line with expectations following the release of national reports this week.
The data will encourage the ECB as it continues with its battle to get inflation back to its 2% target.
