The turnover went up for food products, machinery and equipment, basic metals and fabricated metal products this last three-month period.

Largest increase in basic metals

Turnover rose by 23.6 per cent in the export marked and fell by 13.8 per cent in the domestic market. The increase in turnover for this industry is a product of both increased volume of production and higher prices. See Index of production and the Producer price index for more details.

Positive figures also for fabricated metal products and mineral products

The last three-month period shows an increase in turnover for fabricated metal products by 11.8 per cent and for mineral products by 11.3 per cent. Machinery and equipment also increased turnover by 6.7 per cent this period.

Ships, boats and oil platform continue to go down

In the home marked the turnover rose by 7.5 per cent, but in the export marked the turnover fell by 51.2 per cent. The turnover in this industry is affected by which months the projects are delivered. Statistics of new orders shows fewer new orders and lower order reserves for the time coming, which can contribute to further decline in turnover for ships, boats and oil platforms in the future.
