KUALA LUMPUR, June 11 (Xinhua) Malaysia's Industrial Production Index in April increased by 10.1 percent as compared with April 2009.

This was due to the increases in all indices, namely Manufacturing (14.3 percent), Mining (0.8 percent) and Electricity (12.1 percent), the Malaysian Statistics Department said.

In its latest release, the department said that the manufacturing output in April had increased by 14.3 percent against April 2009 due to rises in various groups.

Among them were electrical and electronics Products (40.1 percent), wood products (26.8 percent), non-metallic mineral products, basic metal and fabricated metal products (26.3 percent).

In the mining sector, the increase of 0.8 percent was due to the increase in the natural gas index (13.8 percent).

Although the crude oil index decreased by 4.5 percent, the increase in the natural gas index outweighed the decrease.
