Finland Producer Prices Change at 5.00 percent
Producer prices in Finland increased 5 percent year-on-year in April of 2017, compared to a 4.8 percent rise in March. It was the sixth straight month of growth, as prices for manufactured products sold on the domestic market rose by 4.3 percent, while prices for exported products went up by 6 percent. The rise was particularly caused by rising prices of manufacturing of basic metal and oil product and was mainly curbed by falls in paper and paper broad products, and electronic appliances. On a monthly basis, producer prices rose 0.2 percent, after showing no growth in a month earlier.
