Producer prices for services went up in October-December

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for services went up by 3.6 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2007 from the corresponding quarter of the year before. The rise in the prices was mostly due to increases in the prices of goods transport by road, technical consultancy and computer and related activities from the corresponding quarter of the previous year.

From the previous quarter, producer prices for services rose by 1.4 per cent. This was mainly due to higher prices of goods transport by road, hotel services and rents of office and business premises.
