Euro zone inflation not greatly impacted by oil price surge: ECB's Jazbec
Inflation in the euro zone is moving along the path envisaged by the European Central Bank and the recent rise in oil price does not have a major effect on it, ECB Governing Council member Bostjan Jazbec said on Thursday.
"Inflation rates are moving in line with the expectations and projections of the European Central Bank," the Slovenian central bank governor told Reuters on the sidelines of a conference.
"The changes of oil price by themselves do not have a major influence unless there is a long-term movement of prices. At this moment they represent just one of the factors that are being used by the ECB in forecasts and projections," Jazbec added.
