In May 2011, the private sector invested nearly 10 percent more in tangible fixed assets than twelve months previously. The increase was more substantial than in April, when private sector investments were nearly 5 percent up on one year previously.
May’s growth can – to a large extent – be attributed to the fact that May 2011 had four working days more than May 2010. In April 2011, the number of working days was the same as twelve months previously.
