Romania’s drop in new industrial orders – 4th steepest in the EU

In October last year new industrial orders rose by 0.6 per cent month-on-month at EU level, however in Romania they dropped by 2.6 per cent, the fourth steepest drop among the 26 member states included in the data that Eurostat presented yesterday.

The highest growth levels were reported in Lithuania (16 per cent), Latvia (9.8 per cent) and Greece (9.5 per cent). At the opposite end, the steepest drops were reported in Hungary (-6.8 per cent), Luxembourg (-3.6 per cent), Belgium (-2.7 per cent) and Romania. The 14.1 per cent year-on-year growth that Romania reported in October last year is close to the EU average of 14.3 per cent. Thus, Romania reported the 15th largest growth in new industrial orders among member states.
