Eurozone inflation falls for 4th month as unemployment dips

Core inflation rate falls to 0.6% from 0.7%, reaching the lowest level since Eurostat began measuring it in 1997

Consumer prices fell 0.1 per cent from a year earlier, Eurostat reported.


THE eurozone continues to flirt with deflation, an official report showed on Tuesday, as consumer prices fell in March for a fourth consecutive month. A separate report, though, showed the unemployment rate in the zone, a 19-nation currency union, dipping slightly in February.
