The producer price index rose 5.5 percent year-on-year in November, after a 5.9 percent increase October. In September, prices grew 5.2 percent.

The development of prices was influenced by weakening of the forint against the euro, the agency said.

Separate data from the statistical office showed that the annual growth in gross wages remained unchanged at 8.8 percent in October.
