The consumer price index rose 0.3 percent from the previous month, reflecting a 0.9 percent increase in food and non-alcoholic beverages' prices, a 4.0 percent rise in hotel-restaurant prices, and a 2.0 percent increase in goods and services.
NSS also published Greece's harmonized inflation figures, used for comparisons with other EU member-states.
