The Export Price Index fell by 1.7 per cent and the Import Price Index by 1.8 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went up by 0.7 per cent. The year-on-year change in the Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply, Including Taxes was 1.6 per cent.

The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of electricity, food, district heating and machines and equipment compared to July 2012. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of manufacturing of basic metals and oil products.

From June to July, producer prices for manufactured products fell by 0.1 per cent. The fall was mainly due to decreased prices of iron and steel and basic chemicals.
