Ljubljana, 09 July (STA) - Slovenian industrial output was up 22.1% in May over the year before on the back of a strong performance in manufacturing and exceeded the pre-crisis level, the latest Statistics Office data show.
Manufacturing surged by over 24% on the year before, whereas electricity, water and steam supply posted a 1.2% gain and mining declined by 6.2%.
While the economy was in lockdown last year rendering comparisons difficult, the figures show output was 2.4% above that in May 2019, before the Covid-19 crisis.
Figures for industrial revenue show a similar picture, with a year-on-year increase of 29.4% driven by manufacturing. Total revenue was 3% higher than in May 2019.
