The Export Price Index remained unchanged from December 2011 to December 2012. The Import Price Index rose by 0.7 per cent. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went up by 2.6 per cent and the year-on-year change in the Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply Including Taxes was 2.9 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by higher prices of electricity, food and oil products from December of the previous year. The rising of the prices was curbed particularly by falls in the prices of paper and electronic appliances.

From November to December, producer prices for manufactured products fell by 0.2 per cent. The fall was mainly due to decreased prices of oil products from the previous month.
