In annual terms, inflation was 0.8 percent. The low economic activity is observed in the countries - major trade partners of the Kyrgyz Republic. It still has an impact on the domestic economy through trade and remittances," Tolkunbek Abdygulov said.

It will support measures to stimulate the economy for the positive growth of trajectory while maintaining a low risk of inflation this year. National Bank expects a moderate increase in prices in 2016, which value is closer to the lower level of inflation rate of 5-7 percent by the end of the year. Despite the current dynamics of prices decline, inflationary pressures persist in the medium term," he added.
