In June 2014, the turnover rose sharply in the manufacturing industry (+1.9%) after a significant decrease in May (–1.4%). Exports rebounded as well (+3.3%).

The turnover went up in the industry as a whole (+1.6%).

Slight decrease over the last three months (–0.4%)…

Over the quarter (q-o-q), the turnover went down slightly in the manufacturing industry (–0.4%) and in the industry as a whole (–0.5%).

The turnover declined in other manufacturing (–1.2%), mainly in the manufacture of rubber and plastic products, and other non-metallic mineral products (–2.3%) and in the manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products (–1.4%). It plunged in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (–4.1%) and it fell in the electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–1.0%). On the contrary, it rose in the manufacture of transport equipment (+2.0%) owed to a considerable upsurge in the manufacture of other transport equipment (+4.1%), and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+1.0%).

…and a very slight rise over the last year (+0.2%)

Year-on-year, the turnover grew very slightly in the manufacturing industry (+0.2%).

Over this period, the turnover improved in the manufacture of transport equipment (+3.7%) and in the manufacture of food products and beverages (+2.0%). Conversely, it dropped in the manufacture of coke and refined petroleum products (–4.5%), in other manufacturing (–0.6%) and in the electrical and electronic equipment; machine equipment (–2.2%).
