Producer prices for services went up in January-March

Corrected on 18 January 2010. Revisions to data on rents of office and business premises .The corrections are indicated in red.

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for services went up by 2.0 per cent in the first quarter of 2009 from the corresponding quarter of the year before. The rise in the prices was particularly caused by increases in the prices of business and other management consultancy activities and architectural and engineering activities from the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The rise of prices was curbed especially by lower prices of sea and coastal freight water transport.

From the previous quarter, producer prices for services fell by 0.2 per cent. This was mainly due to reductions in the prices of goods transport by road and sea and coastal water transport.
