The sector’s output contracted by 5.7% YoY.
The construction sector's dismal performance continued in the past quarter, data from the Ministry of Trade and Industry show.
According to MTI, the sector recorded a 5.7% decrease in output for Q2, extending the 6.3% slump recorded in the preceding quarter.
The trade ministry attributed the lacklustre performance to the fall in both private and public sector construction output.
Meanwhile, on a quarter-on-quarter seasonally-adjusted annualised basis, the sector rebounded from the 15% contraction to post a 4.9% growth.
