Industry in the A.C. of the Basque Country grew by 3.7% in May 2007

Accumulated growth for the first five months of 2007 was 4.4% in relation to the first five months of 2006



Industrial production in the A.C. of the Basque Country grew by 3.7% in May 2007 with regard to the same month of 2006 in homogenous terms of the working calendar, according to EUSTAT data. Accumulated growth for the first five months of the year was 4.4% in relation to the same period of 2006.


In May 2007, compared to April, industrial production in the A.C. of the Basque Country grew by 3.1%, once seasonal effects had been corrected.


The balance of industrial activity for the first five months of the year closed with a 4.4% increase in the inter-annual rate, helped chiefly by the notable performances of Capital Goods and Intermediate Goods and despite the negative rates shown by the energy sector and by Consumer Goods (especially Consumer Non-Durable Goods).
