Industrial, food and metal production surged during 2012 by 6.2%, 13.2% and 7.4% respectively, the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) announced Saturday.

The value of industrial production in the private sector climbed to EGP 491.9bn in 2012 compared to the EGP 463.1bn recorded in 2011, the agency noted.

“The 6.2% increase was due to the increase in the value of production of some commodity groups such as ores, minerals and nutrition,” CAPMAS said.
