According to media reports, the UK’s industrial production rose in November while factory output in Germany and France unexpectedly declined. Factory output in the UK increased 0.7% month over month in November, beating initial estimates which called for a 0.3% gain in a survey conducted by Bloomberg.

The country’s manufacturing activity posted the fastest increase in seven months in November in spite of a decrease in oil and gas extraction. On a yearly basis, the UK’s industrial production increased 1.1% in November.

Meanwhile, industrial output in Germany and France unexpectedly declined by 0.1% and 0.3%, respectively, in November. Economists’ initial estimates called for a 0.3% increase for France and a 0.4% rise for Germany. France’s manufacturing also weakened 0.6% to post the biggest fall since May.

Germany’s exports declined for a second straight month in November. The country’s exports were down 2.1% in November while imports rose 1.5% on a seasonally adjusted basis, thereby narrowing the country’s trade surplus to €17.7 billion.
