Jakarta: Indonesia posted a month-to-month inflation of 0.1 percent in April 2018, the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) announced Wednesday.

"The country posted a year-on-year inflation of 3.41 percent in April 2018," BPS deputy for distribution and service statistics Yunita Rusanti told reporters.

The low month-to-month inflation was mainly influenced by stable food prices. The number was also affected by volatile fuel prices.

"The food sector posted a month-to-month deflation of 0.26 percent at the time," she added.

As many as 54 cities experienced inflation last month. The other 28 cities experienced deflation in the same period.
