All Press Releases In Subject:
The Economy and Economic Activity

The Companies Survey for the fourth quarter of 2014 reflects a recovery in business sector activity, a correction of the decline in the third quarter during Operation Protective Edge, expressed in a positive Weighted Net Balance and a return to its pace of growth at the beginning of the year (Figure 1 and Table 1). Net balances are positive in most industries surveyed, with the sharpest increases in activity in the manufacturing industry and the transportation and communications industry. The increase in activity during the quarter is seen mainly in domestic sales and in exports. The expectations reported by companies in the current survey are for continued improvement in activity.
