The rise in the producer prices for manufactured products was particularly caused by increased prices of manufacturing of basic metals and oil products from March 2016. The rising of the prices was curbed particularly by falls in the prices of paper and paper board products, and electronic appliances.

The Export Price Index rose by 5.3 per cent and the Import Price Index by 12.8 per cent in the year. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply went up by 6.5 per cent. The Basic Price Index for Domestic Supply including taxes went up by 6.0 per cent.

Export prices were, in particular, boosted by higher prices of manufacturing of basic metals and oil products from March 2016. The rise in prices was curbed especially by lower prices of paper and paper board products. The rise in import prices was, in turn, especially caused by higher prices of oil products and metal ores compared with last year's March. The rise in prices was curbed especially by lower prices of paper and paper board products.
