Eurozone industrial output rebounds in Oct
BRUSSELS: Eurozone industrial production rose 0.7 percent in October, rebounding from a 0.7 percent fall in September, European Union data showed on Tuesday.
The September figure was also an upward revision from a previous estimate of a 0.9 percent contraction, the Eurostat agency said.
Industrial production in the 27-nation EU, which includes non-euro members Britain and Poland, was up 0.3 percent in October from September.
Among individual eurozone states, the sharpest increases were recorded in Luxembourg, where output jumped 6.4 percent in October, and in Greece, up 3.6 percent.
Crisis-hit Ireland, the recipient of an 85-billion-euro (113billion-dollar) bailout this month, suffered a 4.8 percent drop in production, the biggest fall in the 16-nation common currency area. Eurozone powerhouse Germany reported a 3.0 percent rise in production, while output in France was down 0.6 percent. -Ap
