Abstract

In this study, we explore the pass-through of exchange rate fluctuations to domestic CPI inflation and its components in Azerbaijan. Using the data of 2003:Q1-2016:Q2, we estimate a VAR model and find significant but incomplete pass-through. The accumulated pass-through to aggregate CPI inflation is 28 percent within one year. According to our empirical findings, the largest pass-through (ERPT) is observed in the non-food component of CPI inflation which is 41 percent after twelve months period. Since the ERPT is an essential ingredient of price developments in Azerbaijan, it should be assessed precisely and taken into account in monetary policy decisions and inflation forecasting.
