Finland Inflation At 6-Month High

Finland's consumer price inflation rose to the highest level in six months in April, data from Statistics Finland showed on Tuesday.

The latest increase in the inflation was the highest since last October, when it was 1.5 percent.

The rising of consumer prices from a year ago was curbed most by reductions in the prices of mobile phones, televisions, detached houses and child day care fees.

On a month-on-month basis, consumer prices rose 0.6 percent in April.
EU harmonized inflation was 1.5 percent in April. The corresponding figure for euro area was 1.7 percent.

On a monthly basis, the harmonized index of consumer prices gained 0.7 percent in April.
