Turkey: Industrial output declines in June
August 16, 2019
Turkish industrial production fell 3.9% year-on-year in June, down from May’s 1.3% fall. The drop in production was driven by faltering manufacturing output, while the electricity, gas and steam, and mining and quarrying sectors rose.
Sequential data was also downbeat; industrial output fell 3.7% over the prior month in June on a seasonally- and calendar-adjusted basis, contrasting May’s 1.2% increase (previously reported: +1.3% quarter-on-quarter seasonally adjusted).
