Slovakia's industrial output rises

SLOVAKIA's industrial output grew 12 percent year-on-year in June, which was the second highest growth rate in the EU.

In the 27-member European Union, industrial output increased 2.5 percent year-on-year in that period.

Eurostat, the EU Statistical Office, published the results on August 14. Twenty-one EU members presented their statistical data for June, SITA wrote.

In a month-on-month comparison, industrial output in Slovakia fell 0.3 percent in June following its 2.1-percent growth in May. The industrial output of the EU did not change in June, while in May it posted a 0.7-percent increase.

In the 13-member eurozone, industrial output decreased by 0.1 percent in June, while in the previous month it strengthened by one percent.
