Brunei’s CPI down 0.2% in Sept

BRUNEI’S consumer price index (CPI) fell by 0.2 per cent in September from the previous month owing to lower prices of clothing and footwear, the Department of Economic Planning and Development (JPKE) reported the day before yesterday.

JPKE said clothing and footwear index fell by 5.7 per cent.

The miscellaneous goods and services index fell by 0.8 per cent and the furnishings, household equipment and routine household maintenance index decreased by 0.3 per cent. The food and non-alcoholic beverages and non-food indices decreased by 0.1 per cent and 0.2 per cent, respectively.

One of the only two indices which recorded an increase was the transport index which rose by 1.0 per cent owing to higher airfare. The housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels index increased by 0.1 per cent due to higher cost of home maintenance and repairs.

In comparison to the same month last year, the CPI for September had decreased by 1.0 per cent. This was mainly due to a decline in the indices of clothing and footwear by 7.7 per cent, housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels by 4.0 per cent; and food and non-alcoholic beverages by 1.8 per cent.

CPI is a measure of price changes of goods and services paid by the consumer in a specified period. The list of goods and services in the CPI is based on the average expenditure per household from the Household Expenditure Survey.
