According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for manufactured products rose by 5.2 per cent, export prices by 4.7 per cent and import prices by 8.0 per cent from May 2009 to May 2010. The basic price index for domestic supply went up by 5.3 per cent in the year. The year-on-year change in the wholesale price index was 5.4 per cent.
The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was caused by increased prices of, for instance, oil products, copper and pulp from the previous year's May. The rise was curbed by falls in the prices of electronic products and paper.
From April to May producer prices for manufactured products rose by 1.1 per cent. The rise in the prices came especially from increased prices of metals. The rise in the prices was curbed by falls in the price of electricity.
