Retail sales rose 2.9 percent month-on-month in March, after a 2.7 percent decline in February. In January, sales fell 4.3 percent.

The latest growth was due to increasing public demand amid favorable weather.

Retailers expect inflationary pressure in the coming three months ending in May to remain relatively stable and to decline in the next six months ended in August.
