Need help.

I need to find the latest officially inflation rate for Malaysia. I tried Bank NEgara's website but cannot seem to find anything on it. The one in the CIA worldfect book is dated - for 2001.

Does anyone know how I would find this info?
Note: I am not an economist so a simple announced rate will do since I will not understand anything deeper.

Thanks!

Ginaphan,
I'm no economist but I think what you want is the consumer price index. You can find this amongst other tables at
http://www.epu.jpm.my/bi/Stat/Kei/key_economic_indicators1.html#tab9

This is found in the Economic Planning Unit's (EPU) website (http://www.epu.jph.my) which is part of the Prime Minister's Dept. website.

As I can see, the CPI is just under 2.0 as of Dec 2002.

Hope this helps.
