Table of Comparison:
Asian Countries' Inflation Rate (% per year)

Resource: Asian Delvelopment Outlook 2007
Comparison Table: by Runckel & Associates

This table should be read with the Exchange Rates Over the Recent Past Table and considered as a factor in deciding on the desirability of a location for investment and to help project in the business plan for a company the likelihood of prices remaining stable for input costs, imports, export earnings, etc.  Evaluating these factors makes the equation more complex but is always a good addition to the overall business plan process
