Industrial production dropped 8.0 pct in March this year, with manufacturing production falling 10.3 pct in the month, Hellenic Statistical Authority said on Tuesday.
The statistics service, in a report, said the industrial production composite index fell 8.0 pct in March after falling by 3.5 pct in March 2010.

The statistics service attributed this decline to: an increase of mining production by 5.5 pct, a decline of manufacturing production by 10.3 pct (reflecting a 33.5 pct drop in clothing, a 21 pct fall in oil production, a 37.1 pct drop in non-metal minerals and a 22.2 pct fall in furniture production), a 4.4 pct decline in electricity production and a 4.6 pct fall in water production.
