Industry indicators

I came across an article featuring S/ASC mentioning that the next administration will come in with a strong manufacturing sector performance. What I find interesting are the different statistics that was mentioned. I thought it’s interesting to monitor this stats as this provide a clear picture of the state of the country’s industrial and manufacturing sector in particular.

The stats are as follows:

  • Average quarterly growth of manufacturing (vs. services and agriculture) including the growth per sector (i.e. mining, etc.)
  • Capital formation
    • Fixed capital expenditure formation
  • Government spending
  • Volume of Production Index
  • Value of Production Index
  • Employment generated per sector
  • FDI inflows per sector
