Belgium: Industrial production growth rises to a near decade-high at the end of 2019

In December, industrial production soared 11.7% on an annual- and seasonally-adjusted basis, up from November’s downwardly revised 1.8% rise (previously reported: +2.2%) and marking the best result since October 2010. A marked rebound in manufacturing output, coupled with an upbeat electricity and utilities supply sector were behind the pick-up, according to a breakdown by Belgium’s Statistical Institute on 25 February.
