Sector covered in the first phase 2002/03: Publishing, Printing and Reproduction of Recorded Media    
This sector (NACE Rev. 1 22) comprises:
Code Activity
22.1 Publishing
22.2 Printing and service activities related to printing
22.3 Reproduction of recorded media

The contribution to total production value or GDP of this sector is only about 4%. However, publishing & printing is one of those sectors within the manufacturing industries where probably the most severe impacts of ICT occur, regarding products, production processes as well as the relationships between customers and suppliers. The products of this sector are particularly suitable to be traded electronically since they can easily be converted into digital goods.
