The rise of producer prices for manufactured products was particularly attributable to higher prices of oil products, electricity, copper and pulp from last year's March. The rise was curbed by lower prices of electrical products.

From February to March producer prices for manufactured products increased by 0.8 per cent, the rise being mainly due to higher prices of electricity and copper.
