PPI Inflation Hike Alarming

The producer price index (using Iranian year to March 2012) stood at 271.2 for the month ending May 21 (the second Iranian month of Ordibehesht), increasing by a four-year high of 1.8% compared with the previous month. 
The monthly PPI growth, as reported by the Central Bank of Iran, hit levels higher than 3% in a month ending May 21, 2014. Since then, it never increased beyond 1.7%, which makes its 1.8% growth alarming.

The index registered a year-on-year increase of 9.7% compared with the similar month of last year, the Persian economic daily Donya-e-Eqtesad reported.
