Spain: Industrial production rises in February
April 10, 2015
In February, industrial production rose 0.6% over the same month last year in working-day adjusted terms, which was above the revised 0.1% increase tallied in January (previously reported: +0.4% year-on-year). The print mainly reflected a rise in the production of capital and intermediate goods, while production of consumer goods contracted, however, at a weaker pace than in the previous month
Annual average variation of industrial production inched down from January’s 1.2% to 1.0% in February, thereby reaching the lowest print in eight months.
