If the sentences below are both correct, do they have the same meaning?

1) The prices of silk fabrics have risen recently.

2) The prices of silk fabrics have been rising recently.

Thank you.

@paok1970,
"have risen" only indicates a one-time price increase.
"have been rising" means that the prices are on an upward trend, one increase after another after another.
