Within main euro area countries, we saw a decrease in industrial production in on a year on year basis in Greece, Germany, Euro area, Italy, and slightly in Spain, whereas the increase in industrial output was seen in France from -2.7% in December to -0.2% in January.

The lag in vaccination rollout among European countries as well as the absence of a robust fiscal policy is likely to make the recovery phase in the euro area needs a further long time to be accomplished.

This is shown today through the industrial production data and the coming indicators are also expected to show a slower pace of recovery.
