Producer Price Indices in August 2009

Producer prices for manufactured products fell by 8.6 per cent, export prices by 9.6 per cent and import prices by 10.7 per cent from August 2008 to August 2009. The basic price index for domestic supply fell by 8.7 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was -9.5 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 August. The fall in the prices was curbed by risen cost of district heat.

From July to August producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.7 per cent. The rise in the prices came especially from increased prices of oil products. The rising of the prices was held back by reductions in the prices of paper and paper board.
