Colombia| Inflation increase in April is transitory

April's inflation was the highest figure for the year but we believe it is a transitory increase and that at the end of the year it will return to the Bank of the Republic's target of 3% per year. Inflation recently published for April surprised the rise and stood at 0.5% per month above expectations.

Key points

  • Key points:
  • The upward surprise was largely due to food inflation
  • We consider that climatic factors and the effect of Holy Week caused a lower production and collection of food
  • For next months we expect food inflation to continue with an upward trend
