In Slovenia, the growth of production in manufacturing decelerated further in December. According to SORS' provisional seasonally adjusted data, industrial production in manufacturing contracted by 0.7% in comparison with November. At the year-on-year level, production increased by a modest 2.4%, which may be linked to the distribution of Christmas holidays, which was more favorable for collective holidays than in 2006. In the first half of 2007, the robust production activity of Slovenian manufacturing was supported by favorable impulses from the international and domestic environment. The overall slowdown in the second half of the year was softened by vigorous production in the chemical and automotive industries.
