Slovakia: Industrial production picks up in October

Industrial production expanded 1.2% year-on-year in October, up from September’s mediocre 0.4% increase. Growth came on the back of a healthy expansion in manufacturing, which more than offset sharp contractions in mining and quarrying, and in electricity, gas, steam and air-conditioning supply. Robust increases in the manufacture of transport equipment, and of machinery and equipment, drove the manufacturing sector’s positive performance.

After adjusting for seasonal effects, industrial production rose 0.9% over the previous month in October, contrasting September’s 0.2% month-on-month decrease.

Meanwhile, annual average growth in industrial output edged down from September’s 2.2% to 1.8% in October, the lowest reading in almost six years.
