The article focuses on the problem of inflation which is prevailing in Thailand since quite a long time. The consumer price index in Thailand has shown a rapid increase in the past few months. The authorities are making all the efforts in this regard in order to lower the headline inflation using the interest rate instrument. But, it is projected that the gradual abatement of adverse external influences, most importantly in terms of the oil price, and the eventual dissipation of lagged inflation effects, will bring both core and headline inflation back to a stable trajectory by Q206.
