Meanwhile, the sectors of mining and quarrying; electricity and gas supply; and water supply all contracted in the month.On a seasonally-adjusted month-on-month basis, industrial output fell 0.7% in May, down from the 5.8% rise logged in April. Annual average growth in industrial production meanwhile tumbled from 1.2% for the 12 months up to April to 0.3% in May.
