Egypt’s annual urban consumer price inflation falls to 12% in December

CAIRO: Egypt’s annual urban consumer price inflation decreased to 12.0 percent in December from 15.7 percent in November, the official statistics agency CAPMAS said on Thursday.
Inflation has cooled steadily in recent months after an increase in fuel, electricity and transportation prices earlier this year had sent the rate up to a high of 17.7 percent in October.
Egypt has implemented a series of tough austerity measures to help meet the terms of a $12 billion IMF loan program it signed in late 2016.
