Short-term economic statistics postponed

15/09/2006 12:00

The publication of a number of statistics for July (which were scheduled for release in September) has been postponed indefinitely. The postponement will affect statistics on consumption by households, monthly production indices for manufacturing and construction, and monthly turnover statistics for a number of sectors, including retail trade, manufacturing, construction, energy companies and mineral extraction. The delay has been caused by technical problems surrounding the introduction of a new register of companies.
