[EN] In this note, the subsectors that stand out in the higher surge of inflation in Turkey relative to European Union countries are identified; and alcohol-tobacco, energy, unprocessed food and catering services price indices are observed to display higher increases relative to both domestic aggregate price index and international price index of the same sector in the recent period. Then, the role of low relative price on the high course of inflation is analyzed. Results show that having a low level of price relative to other countries has partial explanatory power and indicate the relevance of structural factors that are specific to Turkey in explaining the high course of inflation. In this framework, for the subsectors of alcohol-tobacco, energy and food, attention is drawn on the issues like tax policy, effects resulting from import dependence and sectoral competition.
