Consumer prices rose 1.1% from the previous month in March, accelerating sharply from February’s 0.1% increase.


According to Latvia’s Central Statistical Bureau, the reading largely reflected higher prices for clothing and footwear, and food more than offsetting lower prices for furnishings and miscellaneous goods.
