Greek consumer price inflation slows to 0.2 pct in March

    ATHENS, April 13 (Reuters) - Greece's annual EU-harmonised
inflation rate slowed in March, statistics service ELSTAT data
showed on Friday.
    The reading in March was 0.2 percent from 0.4 percent in
February. The data also showed the headline consumer price index
turned negative at -0.2 percent year-on-year from 0.1 percent in
the previous month.
    Greece had been in a protracted deflation mode since March
2013 based on its headline index, as wage and pension cuts and a
multi-year recession took a heavy toll on Greek household
incomes.
    Deflation in the country hit its highest level in Nov. 2013
when consumer prices registered a 2.9 percent year-on-year
decline. The economy emerged from deflation in June 2016.
