Country Report Macau

Figures published on October 21st by Macau's Statistics and Census Service showed that the territory's consumer prices were up by 5.8% year on year in September, down from 6.1% in August.

Inflation in Macau remains high, partly as a result of rapid growth in rent costs, reflecting the rising property prices that have accompanied the territory's rapid economic growth, as well as space constraints that limit developers' ability to increase the supply of homes. Housing and fuels prices were up by 12.2% year on year in September, above the 12% increase recorded in August. Housing and fuels was the only major component of the consumer price index to record an above-average increase. Food and non-alcoholic beverages prices rose by a more sedate 5.5%, from 5.9% in August, which helped to cool the overall pace of inflation. Nonetheless, growth in food and beverage costs remains significantly higher than that on the Chinese mainland, the main source of Macau's food.

On a month-on-month basis, the trend in inflation looked less positive in September, with prices rising by 0.5% compared with August (when the month-on-month increase in prices stood at 0.3%). This was partly because consumer prices were supported by higher tuition fees in the new academic year, with a month-on-month increase in education prices of 2.6% in September.
