Inflation rate in Mexico rose to 4.65 percent year-on-year in June 2018 from 4.51 percent in May and exceeding market expectations of 4.56 percent. It was the first increase in inflation since December, mainly due to higher cost of energy and fuels. The central bank noted that inflation could converge to the 3 percent target more slowly than initially estimated. Main reasons are linked to recent shocks including further peso depreciation caused by fears surrounding the future of NAFTA, presidential elections and rising cost of fuels.
