Hellenic Statistical Authority: Greek producer’s price composite index up 7.9 pct in April

Greek producer’s price composite index in the industrial sector (measuring both the domestic and external markets) grew 7.9 pct in April this year compared with the same month in 2016, after a 10.2 pct decline recorded in the 2016/2015 period, Hellenic Statistical Authority said on Tuesday.

The composite index rose 0.6 pct in April from March 2017, after a 0.4 pct increase recorded in the same period last year.
