Czech producer price inflation slowed in September, figures from the Czech Statistical Office (CZSO) showed on Wednesday.
The producer price index (PPI) climbed 1.9% year-on-year in September, after 2.1% rise in August and July. That was in line with economists’ expectation.
Among the main components, price of electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning grew 7.7% annually in September, and those of mining and quarrying and manufactured goods rose 6.6% and 0.6%, respectively.
On a monthly basis, producer prices edged up 0.1% in September, CZSO said.
