It's the 8th month running that Belgium has the highest inflation rate within the euro zone, and within the European Union as a whole, the statistics agency Eurostat said in a statement.
Inflation was at 0.0 percent in the EU, and at 0.1 percent in the euro zone. Belgium tops the European inflation rankings, followed by Sweden (+1.2 percent) and Malta (+1.0). Cyprus had the biggest negative inflation (-2.0), followed by Bulgaria (-1.9) and Croatia (-1.2). Life actually became cheaper in these countries, which may be good news for consumers, but it's not good news for the local economy.
