Producer prices for services were pushed up particularly by higher prices of computer programming and consultancy and postal activities under universal service obligation during the year. The overall index also rose due to increases in the rents of office and business premises and in the prices of architectural and engineering activities and management consultancy activities. The rise was held back by, among other things, lower prices of telecommunications and sea and coastal freight water transport and freight transport by road.

From first to second quarter producer prices for services remained on average unchanged.
