In February, industrial production rose a working-day adjusted 1.7% over the same month last year. February's expansion marked the third consecutive increase in industrial output and the fastest increase since October 2012. The figure overshot the 1.1% rise recorded in January and reflected an improvement in manufacturing, which accelerated form a 1.1% increase in January to a 1.9% rise in February-the fastest pace of expansion in eight months.

As a result of February's reading, annual average variation in industrial production rose from minus 3.1% in January to minus 2.6% in February.
