Inflation To Spike

March 2007
Emerging Europe Monitor: Russia & CIS;Mar2007, Vol. 11 Issue 3, p11
Country Report
The article discusses a forecast by Business Monitor International (BMI) that an increase in inflation in Armenia which was estimated for 2006 could imply a risk of economic overheating. BMI is convinced that a rise in energy prices has forced the Central Bank of Armenia to increase its target deflation rate in 2007. BMI predicts a decrease in inflation and prices as the price hike is absorbed over time.
