Construction production as a whole progressed more dynamically even during July, it remained in positive numbers thanks to domestic production. It was mainly supported by the started new construction and more intensive works on engineering infrastructure. Building construction and construction work realized abroad continued to lag behind.

In July 2023, the volume of construction production1) reached EUR 612 million and it rose by 3% year-on-year2). After seasonal adjustment, it increased by 2.5% compared to June 2023.
