According to data released by Germany’s Ministry of Economy, the country’s industrial production beat estimates in February. Industrial production increased 0.2% on a seasonally and working-day adjusted basis in February. Initial estimates called for a 0.1% gain. On a yearly basis, however, Germany’s industrial output decreased 0.3 % in February.

The increase in industrial output was attributed to higher production of capital goods, which rose 1.2%. Intermediate goods output also increased 0.2% in February while consumer goods production fell 0.3%.

Meanwhile, Germany’s exports and imports expanded in February, according to a separate report from the country’s statistical office Destatis. Exports rose 1.5% on the month in February after declining 2.1% in January while imports grew 1.8% following a 0.2% drop in the previous month. On a yearly basis, Germany’s exports climbed 3.9% while imports rose 0.8%.

Germany’s trade surplus rose to €19.2 billion in February from €15.9 billion in the previous month to beat economists’ estimates, which called for an increase to €19 billion.
