TRIBUNBATAM.id - Batam City Inflation during December 2019 became the highest inflation in Indonesia out of 72 cities experiencing inflation.

The inflation was based on the increase on Consumer Price Index (CPI) from 137,53 in November 2019 to 139,28 last December.

Sectors contributing to inflation in Batam are food, transportation, communication, financial services, staple foods and others.

Yusfa Hendri, Assistant Government and People's Welfare of Batam City Government confirmed and explained the large inflation was influenced by various things such as staples that are not produced in Batam.

"Food can be the biggest factor influencing inflation because not much is produced in Batam City, so the distribution is slow due to several factors that cause inflation," said Yusfa.

Yusfa said one of the efforts that had been carried out by Batam City government was opening direct access to some of goods-producing regions in Sumatra through Jambi.

Furthermore, The transportation side which is also a contributing factor to inflation, Yusuf said the infrastructure had been prepared to increase public transportation mode in Batam City. (TRIBUNBATAM.ID/ALAMUDIN)
