Consumer’s price index or inflation rate for the month of October was registered at 106.85 points or 0.34 percent increase compared to the same period last year.

The rate increase was the seventh in a row, averaging 0.06 percent rise monthly for the past ten months.

The increased CPI was attributable to 0.89 percent price increase of food and non-alcoholic drinks segment and 0.02 percent price increase of non-food and non-drink segment such as eggs and pork.

However, Ms  Pimchanok Wornkhorporn, deputy director of the Office of Trade Policy and Strategy said that the inflation rate for the whole year would increase at most one percent as earlier forecast by the Commerce Ministry as the economic growth rate was expected to increase 3.3 percent with the price of crude oil fluctuating between US$35-45 per barrel and the exchange rate between 35-37 baht per dollar.
