Abu Dhabi’s monthly rate of inflation has fallen to 0.98 percent over the first 10 months of 2009 as compared to 14.41 percent during the same period last year, according to a report issued by the Statistics Center – Abu Dhabi (SCAD). The inflation rate is the lowest in two decades, says the report, and forecasts that it will decline even further.
