Turnover growth in main service industries was fastest in information and communication activities where turnover increased by 11.6 per cent in September to November. The growth in the industry is still based on good turnover development in computer programming and information service enterprises. In the past three months, the turnover of computer programming enterprises grew by 27.9 per cent and that of information service enterprises by 21.7 per cent. Telecommunications have, in turn, restrained the growth, as the turnover of these enterprises contracted by three per cent in September to November.

The turnover development of the most significant main service industry, transport and storage, has continued as weak. The turnover of the industry decreased by 0.8 per cent in September to November year-on-year. Within the industry, turnover declined most in water traffic, by 2.6 per cent from one year ago. The turnover of land transport, as well as enterprises in warehousing and support activities for transportation decreased in the latest review period.
