BRUSSELS, September 14 (Reuters) – Industrial production in the eurozone rose according to expectations in July, supported by an increase in the production of capital goods and durable consumer goods, data showed Monday by Eurostat.
Industrial production in the 19 countries sharing the euro grew 4.1% month-on-month and fell 7.7% from July 2019.
Economists polled by Reuters expected growth of 4% over one month and decline of 8.2% over one year.
Industrial production in the monetary union is benefiting from the recovery in demand with the lifting of containment measures but remains below its levels before the health crisis.
