German industrial production growth less than expected


German industrial production rose by 7.8 percent in May compared to the previous month. In April there was an unprecedented contraction in industrial production, due to corona measures that led to factory closures.

Economists generally expected a stronger recovery. They expected an industrial production increase of 11.1 percent on a monthly basis. Industrial production declined by an adjusted 17.5 percent in April, the sharpest decline since measurements began in 1991.
