Invitation to expert panel Inflation in light of the epidemic: what can we expect?

10/05/2021 / Press release

A strong recovery in economic activity is underway in the euro area, particularly in Slovenia, as the containment measures are relaxed. However, the question of rising consumer price inflation is increasingly coming to the fore.

In Slovenia and in the euro area overall it is currently above the ECB’s target of 2%, although the prevailing expert judgment is that after gradually rising up to the end of this year, inflation will start easing off next year. This year’s price rises are to a considerable extent being driven by temporary factors, but the risk of future rises nevertheless remains pronounced.

Banka Slovenije has therefore decided to organise a short panel discussion entitled Inflation in light of the epidemic: what can we expect?

It will be held on Monday, 18 October, between 10 am and 12 pm, at the Banka Slovenije buil­ding (a stream will also be available online via YouTube).

The programme of the event is available on the link, invitation and instructions for registration can be found here
