Greece’s industrial import price index rose 8.7 pct in July, compared with the same month last year, after a 6.0 pct increase recorded in July 2010, Hellenic Statistical Authority said on Monday.
The statistics service, in a report, attributed this development in the so-called imported inflation to an 1.8 pct rise in the import price index from Eurozone countries and a 15.2 pct increase in the import price index from other countries.

The index was up 1.2 pct in July from June.
