Poland's industrial production up in February - Eurostat

Poland's working-day adjusted industrial production rose by 3.6 percent year on year in February 2020, after growing by 3.4 percent year on year in January 2020, the European Union's statistics office, Eurostat, reported on Thursday.

Industrial production in the euro zone decreased by 1.9 percent year on year in February and fell by 0.1 percent from the previous month, Eurostat said.

Economists rightly predicted that industrial production in the euro zone had gone down by 1.9 percent year on year and 0.1 percent month on month in February.

According to the Polish Central Statistical Office (GUS), Poland's industrial output rose by 4.9 percent year on year in February 2020, after a 4.5-percent increase year on year in January. Month on month, industrial production rose by 2.2 percent in February after a 4.5-percent increase in January.

Differences between GUS and Eurostat data arise from the application of different calculation methods.
