China's industrial output growth accelerated to 19.2 percent in November year-on-year, following a 16.1-percent increase in October, data from the National Bureau of Statistics showed Friday.
The figure increased 10.3 percent year-on-year over first 11 months this year, 0.9 percentage points higher than that of the first 10 months, said the NBS.
Production of heavy industries was up 22.2 percent in November, and that for the light industries rose 12.6 percent.
China's continued economic growth had brought the acceleration in industrial growth, said Sheng Laiyun, a spokesman with NBS.
He also attributed the rapid growth to the sharp industrial decline in the corresponding period last year. In November 2008, China's industrial output growth slowed to 5.4 percent year-on-year.
