Prices are going down in Belgium
The Belgian economy is now experiencing negative inflation for the first time since the noughties.
In September inflation dipped from 0.02 percent in August to -0.12 percent this month.
This means that Belgian goods and services are getting cheaper in the shops.
The figures come from the Belgian Economy Ministry. Belgium's economy is now in a state of deflation for the first time since 2009.
Energy and food prices are all down.
There are major concerns that deflation will be detrimental to the long-awaited economic recovery.
As consumers expect further price falls they put off big purchases damaging economic growth.
