TUNIS (Reuters) – Tunisia’s inflation rate remained at 7.4 percent in November, the third consecutive month at that figure, official data showed on Wednesday.

Inflation has fallen from 7.5 percent in August and 7.8 percent in June.

In May, Tunisia’s central bank raised its key interest rate by 100 basis points to 6.75 percent, the second hike in three months, to tackle inflation.
