The Index of Industrial Production for Slovakia increased by 6.8 percent year-on-year in March, the Statistics Office announced on May 9, as reported by the TASR newswire.
A 10-percent hike in industrial production was recorded but supplies of electricity, gas, and steam recorded a drop of 6 percent on an annual basis along with a fall of 17.8 percent in mining and quarrying.
Improved industrial output was mainly influenced by a rise in the production of transport vehicles (21.6 percent) and of miscellaneous machines and equipment (19.6 percent). After seasonal adjustment, industrial output increased by 1.1 percent from February 2011.
