Industrial production fell about 1.3% in January compared to the previous month, after falling 0.7% in December, the group said in a statement.

Production increased by 1.9% in November, contributing to the expansion of gross domestic product in the fourth quarter.

The shrinkage in January was the result of soaring energy and commodity costs, as well as persistent bottlenecks and shortages, the employers’ union said. Italy this week reaffirmed its 2022 GDP growth target of more than 4%.
