PRICES IN THE NATIONAL ACCOUNTS


The annual movements for the Chain price indexes for GDP and Domestic final demand were 4.8% and 2.8% respectively. This gap in price movements is mainly caused by changes in prices paid for Imports and the prices received for Exports. The Chain price index for Exports showed a strong increase of 15.1%, with large increases recorded for Coal (42%), Gold (40%) and Mineral ores (38%).

Exports, Chain price indexes for selected items, Reference year: 2004-05 = 100.0
