Serbia: Industrial sector gains ground in November
December 29, 2019
Industrial production grew 1.1% year-on-year in November, up from the 0.5% increase in October. The acceleration was driven by a rebound in electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply, while manufacturing output growth was stable from the prior month. Conversely, mining and quarrying production declined at a sharper rate in November.
On a month-on-month seasonally-adjusted basis, industrial production rose 1.6% in November, contrasting the 0.3% dip logged in October. Meanwhile, annual average industrial production fell 1.0% in November, easing from the 1.2% decline in October.
