Despite positive signs from the market in the first five months, considerable inflation pressure is forecast to persist in the time to come, mainly due to the increasing prices of petroleum and other major materials.

In addition, the adjustment of basic salary on July 1 is expected to impact the prices of goods and domestic consumption.
