Industrial production in Slovakia grew by 17.3 percent year-on-year in January, with the rate of increase thereby slowing by 2.6 percentage points over the month, the Statistics Office announced on Tuesday, March 8. On a monthly basis, industrial production in January was up by 0.9 percent.

The increase was mainly due to a 20.4-percent rise in manufacturing output and 3.4-percent growth in supplies of electricity, gas, steam and cold air, the TASR newswire wrote. A boost for industrial output was provided by the production of means of transport, which soared by 51 percent in annual terms.
