Prices of industrial products in Slovakia continue declining as data released by the Slovak Statistics Office show that following a 2.4 percent drop of local prices of industrial producers in May, prices were lower by 3.2 percent in June, the SITA newswire wrote. The 7.2-percent year-on-year decrease in prices of industrial manufacturing was the main reason behind the June development.

Prices of mining and extraction of raw mineral materials also went down by three percent while prices of services related to water supplies grew by 3.6 percent. Prices of energy supplies were 1.9 percent higher.

On average from the beginning of the year, industrial producer prices thus remained unchanged from the same period a year ago. SITA
