The rise in producer prices for services was especially due to higher prices of goods transport by road compared to the year before. The rising of prices was also influenced by increases in the rents of construction machinery and equipment, computer programming and consultancy as well as engineering activities. The rise in prices was curbed most by decreases in the prices of telecommunications.

From first to second quarter producer prices for services went up by 0.4 per cent. This was mainly due to higher prices of the rents of construction machinery and equipment.
