Projected May 2021 inflation at 0.28% MoM (0.86% YtD; 1.64% YoY), contributed by intercity transport fares. This figure was relatively well maintained the previous month at 0.13% MoM. However, it increased significantly compared to May 2020 of 0.07% MoM. NHKSI Research sees that the traffic flow for Eid this year is looser than last year.
