The export price index rose by 1.3 per cent and the import price index by 4.6 per cent in the year. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 3.4 per cent and the year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 4.2 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by risen prices of oil products, chemicals and food from December of the previous year. The rising of the prices was curbed above all by falls in the price of electricity.

From November to December, producer prices for manufactured products went down by 0.4 per cent. The fall was mainly due to decreased prices of electricity.
