Economic Indicators Up .1% in August

The economy grew by a tenth of a percent in August, according to data, released Sunday by the Bank of Israel. The increase in the index of leading economic indicators reflected increases in the export of services, industrial output and revenue from goods and services. The increases were offset by decreases in the export of goods and the imports of consumer goods and raw materials for production.

The Central Bureau of Statistics revised June and July figures downward for the export of goods and industrial output.
