Accordingly, the country’s industrial output increased by 3.4% in October on a yearly basis, following an increase of 4.7% recorded in the previous month. This fell short of the analysts’ expectations of an increase of around 4%.

Manufacturing production rose 4.2% year-on-year while mining activity increased 0.8% in October. The electricity index also increased by 4.6% from a year earlier.
