The reading was slightly lower than forecast by analysts, who had expected an increase of 18.9 percent, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.
In month-on-month terms, Polish industrial production in June was 4 percent higher than in May, the Central Statistical Office said.
According to the European Union’s Eurostat statistics agency, which uses a different methodology, industrial production in Poland rose 30.2 percent in May, one of the fastest rates of growth in the 27-nation bloc.
