The export price index rose by 7.1 per cent and the import price index by 7.8 per cent in the year. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 7.2 per cent while the year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 8.7 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was caused by increases in the prices of, for instance, metals, pulp and oil products from the previous year’s October. The rising of the prices was curbed by falls in the prices of electronic products.

From September to October, producer prices for manufactured products went up by 0.1 per cent. The rise was caused by, among other things, increases in the prices of chemicals. The rise was held back by fallen price of pulp, in particular.
