Uruguay: Industrial production slumps again in March

Industrial production fell 5.5% over the same month of the previous year in March, following a milder 2.5% year-on-year drop in February and marking the worst reading so far this year. Meanwhile, industrial production, excluding refinery output, declined 2.4% on an annual basis in March compared to the 2.1% dip in February.

Looking at a breakdown of the sub-components, a marked contraction in the production of basic metals and derived products of oil and coal led the overall contraction.

Meanwhile, annual average variation in industrial output fell from 11.5% in February to 9.1% in March, marking the lowest reading since September 2018.
