The index of producer and import prices in Switzerland probably declined 0.8% in March from a year ago, according to the median experts estimate. The index consists of two sub-indexes, the producer price index (PPI) and the index of import prices (IIP). The PPI refers to goods produced and sold domestically or exported by Swiss companies. Goods includes raw materials, starting materials, semi-finished and finished products. Prices of goods are measured at the first marketing step in the production of the good, prices FOB or EXW as the VAT is not included, as opposed to indirect taxes. The IIP has a similar structure to that of producer prices, reflecting the prices of imported goods (price, before duty, VAT ). The combined index of producer and import prices generally reflects changes in both indexes, by summing up their values . This is the percentage change from the same month a year ago.
The Swiss Federal Statistical Office is scheduled to release the official figures at 07:15 GMT. Higher-than-expected readings will certainly heighten the appeal of the Swiss franc.
