Hamad Kurbanov5 Eco Mt A10/03/2014Belgische inflatie stijgt tot 1,14 procentDe inflatie is in januari gestegen tot 1,14 procent, tegenover 0,97 procent in december. Voor het eerst in vijf maanden is de inflatie hoger dan 1 procent. De hogere prijzen voor onder meer groenten wogen zwaarder dan de invoering van een nieuwe indexkorf, die de inflatie afremt.11 Februari 2014Het indexcijfer van consumptieprijzen steeg met 0,14 punt tot 100,50 punten, meldt de federale overheidsdienst Economie. Hij noteerde prijsstijgingen voor groenten, woninghuur, riolering en afvalwaterzuivering, publieke ziekteverzekering en brandverzekering.

De omrekeningscoëfficiënt van de oude naar de nieuwe index bedraagt 0,817 voor dealgemene index en 0,828 voor de gezondheidsindex.OmrekeningscoëfficiëntHet inflatiecijfer wordt normaal op het einde van de maand bekendgemaakt. In januari is dat evenwel niet gelukt. De sociale partners slaagden er niet in een akkoord te sluiten over de omrekeningscoëfficiënt. De beslissing was immers gekoppeld aan de hervorming van de ontslagmotivering en de aanvullende pensioenen.Pas gisteren werd daarover een akkoordbereikt, waardoor het inflatiecijfer nu pas gepubliceerd kon worden.OverindexeringDe index en de geïndexeerde lonen zullen daardoor gemiddeld 0,12 procent hoger liggen, wat de ondernemingen 180 miljoen euro kost.Agoria,TechnologiefederatieAgoria, de werkgeversfederatie voor de technologische sector, reageerde teleurgesteld op de beslissing over de coëfficiënt. Het betreurt dat er geen compensensatie komt voor de vermeende 'overindexering' uit het verleden. De werkgevers stellen immers dat de vorige index de prijsevolutie overschatte en hoopten dat via de omrekeningscoëfficiënt te compenseren. Tevergeefs, blijkt nu.'De index en de geïndexeerde lonen zullen daardoor gemiddeld 0,12 procent hoger liggen, wat de ondernemingen 180 miljoen euro kost', stelt de sectorfederatie Agoria.BesprekingIn januari is de inflatie gestegen naar 1,14 procent, deze was nog 0.97 procent procent in december. Dit komt vooral door de prijsstijging van groenten, woninghuur, riolering en afvanwaterzuivering, publieke ziekteverzekering en brandverzekering. Dit is het hoogste peil sinds zes maanden. Deze is nog laag dankzij de energieproducten die de maanden ervoor 4.2 procent goedkoper waren. De spilindex is nog niet overschreden maar er wordt een overschijding verwacht tegen december. Men is er ook niet in geslaagd om de omrekeningscoefficient meteen bekend te maken, men geraakten niet aan een akkoord, dit gebeurde wel de dag erna.Lonen en index zuller 0.12 procent hoger liggen.Detijd,Internet,11/02/2014,(http://www.tijd.be/nieuws/politiek_economie_economie/Belgische_inflatie_stijgt_tot_1_14_procent.9465389-3148.art?ckc=1) (11/02/2014)
