The export price index rose by 5.9 per cent and the import price index by 7.5 per cent in the year. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 7.3 per cent and the year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 9.5 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was especially caused by increased prices of oil products, iron and steel, and chemicals from the previous year's May. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of electronic appliances and pulp in particular.

From April to May producer prices for manufactured products rose by 0.4 per cent. The rise was mainly due to increased prices of iron and steel, and food products.
