Producer Price Indices in May 2007

Producer prices for manufactured products rose by 3.9 per cent, export prices by 3.9 per cent and import prices by 3.4 per cent from May 2006 to May 2007. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 4.6 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index amounted to 4.2 per cent.

Among the reasons for the risen producer prices for manufactured products were increases in the prices of nickel and timber from last year's May. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of electrical products.

From April to May producer prices for manufactured products went up by 0.6 per cent, mainly due to risen prices of oil products and basic chemicals. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the price of electricity.
