Boost for exporters

EXPORTERS are benefiting after a 0.4pc fall in factory gate prices in Ireland boosted competitiveness.

However, the new figures from the Central Statistics Office (CSO) outlined that gains in that area are slackening off, as prices were unchanged from June to July.

Over the past year, prices for goods made for export fell 1.6pc while prices for goods sold into the domestic market were up 4.9pc.
