Bulgaria: Growth in industrial production accelerates in January
March 9, 2015
In January, industrial output expanded 1.7% over the same month last year in working-day adjusted terms, according to the National Statistical Institute. The figure was above December’s 1.4% increase. January’s gain largely reflected an improvement in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning.
On a month-on-month basis, industrial production increased a seasonally-adjusted 2.0% in January, which was above the 1.0% expansion recorded in the previous month. Average growth in industrial production remained unchanged at December’s 1.7%.
