Headline: Producer and Import Price Index fell by 0.2% in August 2019
The Producer and Import Price Index fell in August 2019 by 0.2% compared with the previous month, reaching 101.4 points (December 2015 = 100). The decline is due in particular to lower prices for rubber and plastic products as well as basic metals and semi-finished metal products. Compared with August 2018, the price level of the whole range of domestic and imported products fell by 1.9%. These are some of the findings from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
