Inflation in Solomon Islands last year has seen a rise to 10.1 per cent.

According to a report on Solomon Islands radio, the Central Bank attributed the rise to a 20 per cent increase in the index of imported goods.

The Bank says inflation had generally fallen in most parts of Solomon Islands while the exchange rate remained relatively stabilised during the year.
