Among sectors, manufacturing production grew 6.3 percent annually in December, while mining and quarrying production contracted by 8.8 percent and electricity production registered a sharp decline of 13.6 percent.

On a monthly basis, industrial production advanced a seasonally adjusted 0.8 percent from November, when it increased by 0.7 percent.
