Tuesday, the Statistics Estonia said in a report that the consumer price index or CPI rose 2% year-over-year in March, slower than the 3.4% increase in the previous month.

In March, food and non-alcoholic beverages prices increased 0.1% on an annual basis, while clothing and footwear prices rose 0.4%. Transport charges dropped 10.2%.

Month-on-month, the CPI declined 0.5% in March, compared to a 0.3% fall in the previous month. This was mainly due to fall in heat energy prices by 7%.
