Greek consumer prices decreased by 0.3% last month, while the yearly deflation progress decelerated from a 0.7% fall in July, as confirmed by ELSTAT.
August's figure has been been the slowest deflation figure since March of last year. Greece's EU-corresponding deflation rate also declined to -0.2% last month, compared to July's -0.8% rate. In a Reuter's poll, economists forecasted a -0.6% rate.
The nation has been in a deflation mechanism for the past 18 months, due to wage decreases and pensions, along with its serious recession. Greece's deflation figure marked its swiftest mark last November; consumer prices held a 2.9% year-on-year decrease.
