annual inflation rate in the netherlands fell a little In October, calculated according to the EU method, it rose from 17.1% to 16.8%, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday.

The Dutch EU figure, one of the highest in the eurozone, is also considerably lower if CBS uses the actual price households pay for energy rather than the price paid for new contracts in its calculations.
