Poland: Industrial output decelerates in May

June 19, 2018

According to the Central Statistical Office (GUS), industrial production expanded 5.4% in May over the same month a year prior, easing from April’s six-month high of 9.3% growth. The deceleration in May was due to a contraction in mining and quarrying output. Meanwhile, output growth moderated in the electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply; manufacturing; and water supply sub-sectors.

Moreover, annual average growth in industrial output came in at 6.7%, down from 7.0% in April.
