Bulgaria's industrial producer price index (PPI) increased by 9.8% year-on-year in April, after growing by 6.8% in the previous month, the National Statistical Institute (NSI) said on Monday.
The annual increase in the PPI index was mainly backed by a 20% rise in the mining sub-indicator, the NSI said in a statement.
On a monthly comparison basis, industrial producer prices in Bulgaria edged up 0.3% in April, following a 1.4% increase in March.
The industrial PPI on the domestic market rose by an annual 6.8% and rose 0.9% on a monthly comparison basis. The industrial PPI on the non-domestic market added 14.6% year-on-year and fell 0.7% month-on-month.
