A rising Swiss Franc has helped to dampen the inflation associated with some imported goods and services. Over the last 12 months the rate has moved from around 1.09 francs to around 0.99 francs per Euro. At the same time the franc has weakened against the USD from around 0.92 to 0.97 francs to the dollar over the same period, pushing up the price of USD imports.
