Output increased in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+1.9%).

Output increased in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+1.9%). This rise was mainly due to a high level of beer sales before the new tax in 2013.

Output increased slightly in “other manufacturing” (+0.3%).

Output soared in the manufacture of chemicals and chemical products (+4.1%). To a lesser extent, output also rose in the manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment (+1.5%), in the manufacture of wood and paper products; printing and reproduction of record (+2.9%) and in in the manufacture of rubber and plastics products, and other non-metallic mineral products (+1.5%). On the other hand, output declined sharply in other manufacturing, repair and installation of machinery and equipment (-5.6%) as well as in the manufacture of textiles, wearing apparel, leather and related products (-3.5%).
