(Business in Cameroon) - In March 2021, in Douala, the consumer price index (CPI) rose by 0.2%, according to the National Institute of Statistics (INS). The figure is slightly higher than the 0.1% recorded in January and February 2021.

This pronounced rise in prices in the city of Douala was notably due to the further increase in food prices (+0.5%), the rise in the prices of clothing and footwear (+0.6% after +0.1% in the previous month) as well as a rebound in the housing, water, gas, electricity and other fuels’ prices (+0.2% after -0.4% the previous month).

The increase in the prices of food, rental charges, and clothing products was mitigated by the continued decline in the prices of fruits (-2.2% after -9.9% the previous month), and especially salt and spices (-3% after +10% the previous month).
