Eurozone Construction Output Rises For Third Month

Euro area construction output grew for a third straight month in February and at a stronger pace, mainly led by civil engineering works and rebound in building construction, preliminary data from the statistical office Eurostat showed Thursday.

Construction output rose a calendar and seasonally adjusted 1.8 percent month-on-month following a downwardly revised 0.2 percent gain in January.

Building construction grew 3.5 percent, entirely reversing the 3.1 percent slump at the start of the year.
