Manufacturing output grew 3.1 per cent last month from the preceding year, the Economic Development Board said today.

It was also 1.9 per cent higher from October to November.

A large part of that was due to the typically volatile biomedical sector.

Excluding biomedical manufacturing, industrial production would have inched up only 0.9 per cent year-on-year and 0.6 per cent month-on-month.
