Manufacturing output grew 3.1 per cent in November

 
 

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.
