 Core annual inflation, which excludes fresh food, energy, transport, rice and coconuts, also cooled to 4.3 percent in December on an annual basis, from the previous month’s 5.2 percent. The index has a revised base year of 2013 and market basket. On a month-on-month basis, the Colombo Consumer Price Index (CCPI) rose 0.6 percent this month, compared with a 1.2 percent rise in November, data from the Department of Census and Statistics showed.
