Among the examined main industries, the value of new orders declined most, or by 33.6 per cent, in the metal industry. The strong contraction of new orders in the metal industry is explained by the exceptionally high value of new orders received in shipbuilding in March of the comparison year of 2006. In the manufacture of pulp, paper and paper products new orders diminished by 2.6 per cent. In the manufacture of chemicals, chemical products and man-made fibres new orders went up by 0.3 per cent and in the manufacture of textiles and textile products by 3.3 per cent. These statistics typically show strong fluctuations as new orders are not examined over extended time periods but for the statistical reference month only.
