Output fell dramatically in the manufacture of transport equipment (-6.9%).

Output fell dramatically in the manufacture of other transport equipment (-13.5%). Meanwhile, it decreased slightly in the manufacture of motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers (-0.3%).

Output decreased in “other manufacturing” (-1.0%)…

Output declined in the manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products, except machinery and equipment (-1.9%), in the manufacture of rubber and plastics products, and other non-metallic mineral products (-2.3%), in the manufacture of wood and paper products; printing and reproduction of record (-1.4%) as well as in the manufacture of textiles, wearing apparel, leather and related products (-1.8%).

…and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-3.8%).

Output dropped in the manufacture of food products and beverages (-3.8%) after a rise in December mainly due to a high level of beer sales before the raise of the tax.

Output increased in the manufacture of electrical and electronic equipment, machine equipment (+2.7%).

Output soared by 7.6% in the manufacture of computer, electronic and optical products. Output improved in a less sustained pace in the manufacture of electrical equipment (+1.3%) and in the manufacture of machinery and equipment n.e.c. (+0.7%).
