Industrial production up in 10 areas

Industrial production grew 0.8% in May, with the expansion taking place in the majority of the areas surveyed.

Rio de Janeiro – The 0.8% growth seen in the industrial productin in May over April reflects an expansion in 10 of the 14 industrial areas surveyed by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), which made available this Tuesday (11) the data by region on the subject.

According to the Monthly Survey of Industry – Regional, the inflation-adjusted growth was sharper in the state of Ceará, where it reached 5.9%, that is, 5.1 percentage points above the industry’s average national growth.

The data by IBGE signals, on the other hand, that the industry’s cumulative growth of 0.5% in the first five months of the year reflects and expansion in 10 out of 15 areas surveyed in comparison to the same period of last year.
