Producer Price Indices in August 2006

Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 5.2 per cent, export prices by 4.2 per cent and import prices by 7.2 per cent in the year to August. The basic price index for domestic supply rose by 6.2 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change of the wholesale price index was 6.3 per cent.

The rise of producer prices for manufactured products was particularly attributable to higher prices of copper, electricity and oil products from last year's August. The rise was curbed by lower prices of electrical products.

From July to August producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.4 per cent. The rise was mainly due to higher prices of electricity and nickel. The rise of prices was sustained by lower prices of oil products.
