Croatia's industrial output grew by an annual 4% in February, after a 3.5% increase in January, the Zagreb-based Central Bureau of Statistics (Crostat) said on Thursday, quoting working day-adjusted data.

Conversely, output from mining and quarrying activities fell at a stronger pace (-1.3% vs -0.4%). On a monthly basis, industrial production went up 2.6%, rebounding from a 0.6% drop in the previous month.
