The Export Price Index rose by 0.5 per cent and the Import Price Index by 2.0 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went up by 3.0 per cent and the year-on-year change in the Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply, Including Taxes was 3.2 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of oil products, metals and chemicals from the previous year's April. The rising of the prices was curbed above all by falls in the prices of electricity.

From March to April, producer prices for manufactured goods went down by 0.1 per cent. The fall was mainly due to decreased prices of oil products from the previous month.
