Overall industrial-production growth in Slovakia accelerated rapidly from 2 percent year-on-year in March to 9.7 percent in April, the Slovak Statistics Office announced on June 9.

This development was due to industrial production rising by 10.7 percent year-on-year, the mining of mineral resources by 10.3 percent, and the production and distribution of electricity, gas and water by 0.6 percent, the TASR newswire wrote.
