Israel's index of leading economic indicators rose a tenth of a percent in December, according to figures released, Sunday, by the Bank of Israel. The growth rate was stable in recent months, but slow compared to the beginning of 2012.
The bank said the increase in the index "reflects a rise in the index of industrial production and an increase in exports of services. On the other hand, imports and exports of goods decreased, as did the index of revenue from trade and services. There were no real updates in the rate of change in the index from previous months.
