APA-Dakar (Senegal) Massamba Sall –
The activity of metallurgical trades in Senegal in September experienced a revival of activity, registering a sharp increase of 32.5% compared with the previous month, notes the National Agency for Statistics and Demography (ANSD), received on Wednesday at APA.
According to ANSD, this change is mainly due to an increase in the production activity of other metal products, which grew by 41.4%. This increase, however, is mitigated by a slight decrease in the activity of steel production by 0.9%.
As for the period of September 2017, the activity of metals in Senegal increased by 16.8%. However, the total production in the first nine months of 2018 was 11.9% lower than in the corresponding period of 2017.
