Highlights
The combined producer and import price index edged up 0.1 percent on the month in March to leave the yearly inflation rate unchanged at 1.3 percent.

Producer and import prices were both 0.1 percent firmer versus February for yearly rates of 0.4 percent and 3.2 percent respectively. Within the former, recycling charges (12.1 percent) effectively accounted for the entire monthly increase with partial offsets coming from petrol (minus 1.6 percent) and agriculture and forestry (minus 0.9 percent). Most other categories were broadly flat.

The core composite index was unchanged on the month and 0.2 percent lower on the year, matching its February outturn. Underlying prices have been quite stable in recent months and continue to indicate no real pipeline pressure on CPI inflation.

Definition
The producer price and import price index focuses on the actual prices of products on the market (transaction price) at the time of the order. The prices of domestic products are taken at the producer or factory level, excluding value added tax and consumption taxes. For imports, prices are collected at the Swiss border, without the value added tax, taxes on consumption and tariffs. Changes in the index provide a guide to inflation from the point of view of the product's producer/manufacturer  Why Investors Care
