July’s result generally reflected softer contractions across the board. Moreover, the production of other equipment, instruments and apparatus rebounded, while growth in production of food, beverages and tobacco accelerated. That said, the category of automotive and other transport equipment continued to contract by over 20%.

Meanwhile, the annual average variation in industrial output improved to minus 9.5% in July, from minus 9.9% in June.
