Finland Producer Prices Change at 2.30 percent
The Finnish producer price inflation eased to 2.3 percent year-on-year in March 2019 from 3.0 percent in the previous month. It was the lowest rate since February last year, as both manufactured products sold on the domestic market prices (2.7 percent vs 3.2 percent) and export products (1.8 percent vs 2.8 percent) rose at a softer pace. Among sectors, the biggest upward pressure came from pulp, paper, paperboard and cardboard, oil products and electricity. On a monthly basis, producer prices were flat, after a 0.1 percent gain in February.
