Inflation Rate Below 10%
Inflation rate in Iran has dropped to 9.5%, announces the Center of Statistics of Iran on Tuesday. Right at the end of the presidency of Mr. Ahmadinejad in September 2013, inflation rate was 35%. If the inflation remains below 10% for the current year, it will be a great achievement for the Government as it has only happened twice in the history of the Islamic Republic of Iran that inflation rate was below that figure.
The highest inflation rate experienced in the Iranian history, is 110.5% during the second worldwar, i.e. March 1943-1944.
