BOGOTA, July 25 (Reuters) - Colombia's industrial production rose 11.91 percent in May from a year earlier, while the output for the January-through-May period increased 14.13 percent, the National Statistics Department said on Wednesday.
April industrial production was up 13.25 percent from the same month last year.

Retail sales in Colombia rose 10.24 percent in May from 12 months ago and grew 13.13 percent in the first five months of the year versus the year-ago period, the government said in a separate statement.

The economy of the Andean country has gained strength under President Alvaro Uribe, who has reduced crime and attracted foreign investment with his U.S.-backed crackdown on Marxist rebels.
