The entire industry increased by 4.2 percent in September, compared to August, due exclusively to the manufacturing industry, which soared 6 percent. The other two sectors of the industry, namely mining and quarrying, and electricity, heating, gas and water, dropped by 6.5 percent and 7.8 percent, respectively.

Capital goods registered the highest increase, of 32.5 percent. This segment supported almost entirely the whole of industrial production.

Industrial production rose by an annual 3.2 percent in September 2007, sustained by the manufacturing industry (+3.7 percent) and the mining and quarrying industry (+0.1 percent). The increase was half of last year's level, when industrial production rose by 7.4 percent year-on-year. Industrial production increased 5.8 percent in the first nine months of 2007 year-on-year.

Industrial turnover increased faster than the production volume, by 6.7 percent in September from August, while prices of industrial products rose significantly, by 1.4 percent. In the European Union, prices of industrial products rose by 0.4 percent. Lithuania and Bulgaria registered the highest price rises, of 9.8 percent and 9 percent, respectively, and face high consumption prices as well.

The production of durable goods fell by an annual 7.1 percent in September, mainly due to the appreciation of the leu, which raised the competitiveness of imported products.
