Earlier, the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) announced that the annual inflation rate hit its lowest level in 2015 so far in July with 8.3 percent compared to July 2014.

The CAPMAS added that the annual inflation rate reached 11.5 percent in June, 13.5 percent in May, 11 percent in April, 11.8 percent in March, 10.7 percent in February and 9.4 percent in January.
