Industrial output bounces back in February

Industrial output grew 2.4% in month-on-month seasonally-adjusted terms in February, which contrasted January's 6.6% decrease. February's rise was partly driven by a notable rebound in modern sector production. In contrast, traditional sector output weakened sharply.
