Estonia Industrial Output Growth Quickens In March

Estonia's industrial production increased at a notably faster rate in March, helped mainly by higher output of electronic products and electricity, data released by Statistics Estonia showed Tuesday.

Industrial production increased a working-day adjusted 7.1 percent year-on-year in March, notably faster than the 1.8 percent gain seen in February. The faster growth in the production was driven mainly by electronic products and electricity.

On an unadjusted basis, industrial output moved up 2 percent on an annual basis in March, the agency said.
