Industrial output in September rose 2.4 percent from the previous month, an upward revision from a preliminary increase of 1.6 percent, the Ministry of International Trade and Industry said in a report released Monday.

The production index for the nation’s mines and factories, which uses 1990 as a base year, came to a seasonally adjusted 102.8, up 4.2 percent from a year ago, the report says. The upward revision was attributed primarily to strong performance in medicines, whiskeys and condensers that were not reflected in the preliminary report.
