The production of radio, television and communication items grew close to 30% in January, lifting the overall result.

On a monthly basis, manufacturing output decreased a seasonally-adjusted 1.5% in January, contrasting the 0.4% expansion in December. Annual average growth in manufacturing production was 1.8% in January, above December’s 1.4% and the best result in over three years.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecasts panelists expect manufacturing to expand 2.1%, in 2017, which is up 0.3 percentage points from last month’s estimate. For 2018, the panel expects manufacturing to increase 3.4%
