The level of the CPI was 3.8% y-o-y in December. Based on the Economist Intelligent Unit’s predictions, CPI in Iraq increased at a 4.8% y-o-y rate in October and is expected at around 6% for the year 2013.

According to a December 2012 report from Markit and HSBC, PMI in Saudi Arabia and UAE has seen a positive trend, indicating continued growth in the coming year. A report from the Bank of Algeria for 2013 showed that the Algerian government has approved a budget that will set spending at $90.5 bn, down by 11% from the figure agreed to in the 2012 supplementary budget. The official aim is to control the money supply in order to contain inflation.
