TABLE-Albania's inflation rate slows to 1.9 pct in April

    TIRANA, May 8 (Reuters) - Albania's annual consumer price
inflation eased to 1.9 percent in April, and prices fell from
the previous month for the first time since October, the
Institute of Statistics said.
    Annual inflation slowed from 2.1 percent in March. 
    As usual, prices of food and non-alcoholic drinks had mostly
influenced the annual price rise, the Institute said.    
 Albanian CPI     April 2017       March 2017     April 2016 
 Month-on-month       -0.6            0.4             -0.4
  Year-on-year        1.9             2.1             0.3
   Note: The central bank expects annual inflation to begin
gradually returning to its target of 3 percent in 2018.
