On a month-on-month basis, however, VoPI climbed by 0.8 percent in June 2008. The increments reported by sectors were not sizeable enough to offset the decreases registered in production volume by 12 industry groups.

Value of Net Sales expands further in June 2008:
Value of Net Sales Index (VaNSI), on a year-on-year basis, reflected an increment of 8.5 percent in June 2008. This maybe due to the higher sales performance of sectors, with two-digit increases reported by the following: petroleum products (30.5%) and leather products (19.2%).
