Latest Updates

The annual inflation rate in Australia inched higher to 1.7 percent in the September quarter of 2019 from 1.6 percent in the previous period and in line with market expectations. This was the highest inflation rate since the fourth quarter last year, mainly due to a rebound in cost of furnishings, household equipment and services while transport prices slowed markedly.
