Consumer prices climbed 1.9 percent year-over-year in February, the same rate of increase as in January. Economists had expected the inflation rate to rise to 2.0 percent.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices increased 0.7 percent in February, after a 1.0 percent fall in the previous month. The rise was the biggest since February last year, when prices grew at the same pace.

The statistical office attributed the monthly increase to higher prices for food and non-alcoholic beverages, clothing and higher transport costs.
