Romanian Inflation to Quicken From May, After Slowing Toward 2%

Romania’s inflation will accelerate beginning next month because of a statistical base effect, though the rate won’t exceed 3 percent, Adrian Vasilescu, an adviser to central bank Governor Mugur Isarescu, wrote in an opinion column in Ziarul Financiar.

The inflation rate, which fell to a record-low 2.4 percent in March from a year earlier, will probably drop toward 2 percent in April from a year earlier, as consumer-price monthly growth may be about 0.4 percent, Vasilescu wrote in the column.
