Romanian official industrial production nudges up in 2012

Romania's industrial production edged up 0.3 percent in 2012 from output the previous year, seasonally adjusted data from the national statistics agency showed on Friday.

The INS said the gain was supported by a 4.6 percent rise in energy production, while manufacturing dipped 0.2 percent.

Romanian industrial production has held fairly steady since 2011, when it recovered from a drop beginning in 2008 due to the global economic crisis.
