Revisions : +0.1 point in August

The SA-WDA evolution between July and August of the manufacturing production published during the previous campaign was stable. It has been revised at +0.1%.

The raw data revisions are due to industries‘ belated answers, especially in the manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c., the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products and in the other manufacturing.
