Spanish industry boosted production by 4.3 percent over the year to April, the sharpest increase since March 2010, the National Statistics Institute said.
Spain, the eurozone's fourth-largest economy, has now reported six straight months of rising industrial output, according to the data, which are corrected for seasonal blips.
The economy emerged in mid-2013 from five years of stop-start recession, posting a gentle increase in activity since then but not enough to significantly dent the unemployment rate, which stands at 25.93 percent.
