At the end of 2020, a positive trend continued in the manufacturing industry.

In the production of wood and cork products, an increase of 43.2% was provided.

In the production of building materials, the growth was 1.8%.

"Positive dynamics in the manufacturing industry was achieved due to the measures taken by the Government to support during the pandemic and the sustainable development of small and medium-sized businesses," the minister added.
