Headline inflation climbs to 4.7% in February, the highest inflation recorded since January 2019, the Philippine Statistics Authority says.

"The main reason for the rise in inflation in the month of February 2021 is the faster increase in the price of Food and Non-Alcoholic Beverages," PSA says.

The Philippine Statistics Authority reports that for all of 2020, inflation averaged 2.6% year-on-year largely as a result of slower price upticks during lockdowns in the early months.

That average was in the low end of Bangko Sentral's 2-4% target for the year. — Philstar.com/Prinz Magtulis
