Slovakia's industrial output continued to rise in December, with the index of industrial production going up by 19.7 percent year-on-year, the Slovak Statistics Office announced on Tuesday, February 8.

The development was mainly due to a 19.4-percent increase in industrial production and a 24.4-percent hike in supplies of electricity, gas, steam and cold air, the TASR newswire wrote.
