Latvia: Industrial rebounds modestly in June

Industrial production rose 0.4% in June from the same month last year, following the weakest performance in three years in May, when output contracted a revised 0.9% (previously reported: -1.1% year-on-year). Meanwhile, annual average industrial production growth dropped to 5.3% in June from 5.9% in May, marking the lowest reading since January 2017.

Industrial output growth in June was driven by a double-digit increase in manufacturing and quarrying, while manufacturing output also expanded year-on-year, albeit at a much slower pace. Meanwhile, electricity and gas supply contracted sharply once again in June.

In seasonally-adjusted terms, industrial production rose 0.6% month-on-month in June, swinging from May’s revised 0.1% contraction (previously reported: -0.2% month-on-month).
