The Statistical Institute of Belize’s latest figures on consumer prices shows that, for the month of December 2019, the national inflation rate stood at 0.2 percent . The All-Items Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose slightly in comparison to the same month last year, from 105.0 in December 2018 to 105.2 in December 2019. This indicates that, on average, prices for items comprising the basket of selected goods and services commonly purchased by Belizean households were 0.2 percent higher than they were last December. Reductions in prices for fuel, rent and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) were not enough to offset the higher prices seen in numerous food items, international airfares and tertiary education fees, resulting in the small overall increase in consumer prices seen during the month. Prices for the year 2019 were marginally higher in comparison to prices for the twelve months of 2018, and the country’s annual inflation rate for 2019 stood at 0.2 percent. During the month of December 2019, goods imported into Belize were valued at $162.5 million, up 6.4 percent or $9.7 million from the $152.8 million imported in December of 2018. Imports of Manufactured Goods saw the most significant growth for the last month of 2019. That category rose by 40 percent, from $17.3 million in December 2018 to $24.2 million in December 2019, as the country imported more metal structures and galvanized steel coils. Imports of Machinery and Transport Equipment also rose notably in the month, growing from $27.5 million to $32.1 million, as a result of greater purchases of water pumps, portable agricultural sprayers and conveyor belts. Goods destined for the Commercial Free Zones went up from $26.8 million in December 2018 to $29.7 million in December 2019, due to bigger imports of cigarettes and clothing, while boosted imports of rice seeds, infant formulas and soybean meal led to an increase in the Food and Live Animals category, from $17.6 million to $19.9 million with heightened imports.
