Industrial output increased 13.0% in year-on-year terms in July, moderating from June's 21.2% increase. July's result came amid a less favorable base effect and was largely driven by slower growth in manufacturing and mining and quarrying output.

Meanwhile, the trend improved, with the annual average growth of industrial production coming in at plus 10.2% in July, up from June's 9.0% reading.
