Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 1.2 per cent in the year

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for manufactured products rose by 1.2 per cent, export prices fell by 0.9 per cent and import prices went up by 1.8 per cent from February 2009 to February 2010. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 1.2 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index also amounted to 1.2 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of oil products, electricity and copper from the previous year's February. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of metals and electronic products.

From January to February, producer prices for manufactured goods went up by 1.1 per cent. The rise in the prices came especially from increased cost of electricity and oil products.
