Producer prices for manufactured products fell by 9.6 per cent, export prices by 10.6 per cent and import prices by 12.6 per cent from July 2008 to July 2009. The basic price index for domestic supply fell by 9.6 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was -10.7 per cent.

Among the reasons for the fallen producer prices for manufactured products were reductions in the prices of oil products and metals from last year's July. The fall in the prices was curbed by risen cost of district heat.

From June to July, producer prices for manufactured products fell by 1.1 per cent. The fall in the prices was especially due to reductions in the prices of metals and electronic products.
