Palestine Industrial Production at -1.70 percent
Industrial production in Palestine decreased by 1.7 percent from a year earlier in November of 2016, following a 3.17 percent rise in October. It was the first decline in four months. On a monthly basis industrial output fell 1.13 percent, following a 2.34 percent increase in the prior month, due to falls in electricity, gas, steam, and air conditioning supply (-11.17 percent), mining and quarrying (-1.97 percent), and manufacturing (-0.35 percent). In contrast, production rose for water supply, sewerage, waste management and remediation activities (+23.07 percent).
