The preliminary data of the National Statistical Institute (NSI) shows that the construction in Bulgaria was revived in April. On an annual basis, there is a growth of 4.1% and in comparison with the previous month the increase was 4.2%.
The positive outcome in April is mainly determined by the increase in building construction, as there the index of construction output grew by 6.5%.
For the past four and a half years the construction of residential buildings decreased continuously.
The only further increase except in April was in February-15.1%, then, the record growth was due to the excessively low base of comparison from last year.
In civil construction, which includes public infrastructure projects, has a minimum growth of 0.7 % on an annual basis.
Despite the small increase, it is the first for the last five months. In March was recorded an annual decline of 11.4%.
