The National Statistical Institute announced inflation in December, which is expected to be high. For the year, on average, prices increased by 7.8%.
The change is different for individual products and services, and there are even some cheaper ones. The Minister of Finance Asen Vassilev expects the most critical months in terms of inflation to be March and April, and most economists predict that energy prices will calm down in the spring and thus will not feed the rise in prices. The pandemic has also made a significant contribution to inflation, since the beginning of which a number of raw materials have risen in price, and governments have launched programs to help businesses and people. In recent years, central banks have printed a lot of money, which has also fueled inflation, which in this case Bulgaria imports.
