Producer prices for services rose in January to March

According to Statistics Finland, producer prices for services rose by 1.5 per cent in the first quarter of 2006 compared with the corresponding quarter of the previous year. The rise of prices was principally due to higher prices of freight transport by road and computer and related activities from the corresponding quarter of 2005. The rise of prices was curbed most by lower prices of telecommunication.

From the previous quarter, producer prices for services rose by 0.7 per cent. The rise was mainly due to higher prices of computer and related services and technical consultancy.
