Romania: Industrial production continues expanding at a strong rate in December

February 13, 2018

Industrial output expanded a robust 7.9% in annual terms in December, albeit down from November’s remarkable 9.2% growth rate. According to the Statistical Institute, the healthy reading came on the back of strong growth in the manufacturing and the mining and quarrying sectors, whereas steam and air conditioning, electricity and gas output contracted slightly.

On a seasonally- and working-day adjusted month-on-month basis, industrial production jumped 3.7% in December, following a much softer 1.0% expansion in November. Meanwhile, annual average growth in industrial production improved on November’s strong showing of 7.9%, ramping up to 8.2% in December—a multi-year high.
