Producer prices for manufactured products went down especially due to reductions in the prices of oil products and food from the previous year's April. The fall in producer prices was slowed down especially by higher prices of paper and paper board products.

The Export Price Index rose by 0.6 per cent and the Import Price Index fell by 3.6 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went down by 1.9 per cent. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply including taxes fell by 1.4 per cent.

Export prices rose particularly because of increased prices of paper and paper board products and of manufacturing of basic metals from the previous year's April. The rising of the prices was curbed above all by falls in the prices of oil products. The fall in import prices was especially due to lower prices of oil products compared with last year's April. The fall in prices was slowed down, in particular, by higher prices of electronic appliances.

From March to April, producer prices for manufactured products went up by 0.5 per cent. The rise was mainly due to increased prices of oil products from the previous month.
