Inflation in the Netherlands reached 17.1 percent in September, setting a new record.
PARIS, September 30 – RIA Novosti. The Netherlands’ Central Bureau of Statistics said on Friday that annual inflation in the Netherlands reached 17.1% in September, setting a new record, according to preliminary estimates (GIS).
According to the first assessment of the European harmonized consumer price index, the overall level of prices for goods and services in the Netherlands in September this year increased by 17.1% compared to September 2021. This is due to the sharp increase in gas and electricity prices.
At the same time, as Dutch media reported, the Central Bureau of Statistics calculates data on the basis of new energy contracts. This means that real inflation could be lower as not all households switch to new contracts since September.
Earlier, it was reported that the Dutch government plans to allocate about 15 billion euros next year to reduce the effects of inflation on the population.
In August, the increase in the general level of prices of goods and services in the Netherlands was 13.7%.
