GDP increased by 2% according to seasonally and calendar adjusted and reconciled data.
KSH notes that the extraordinary situation resulting from the coronavirus pandemic had a negative impact on the production of most sections.
On the other hand, market services and, to a lesser extent, industry continued to be the driving forces for growth in the quarter as a whole.
Compared to Q4 2019, the volume of GDP decreased by 0.4%, according to seasonally and calendar adjusted and reconciled data.
