Fixed investment dropped an annual 6.4% in the Q3 and net external demand contributed negatively to the GDP as exports slumped 20.8%, while imports fell 4.3%.

On the other hand, final consumption added 2.7%.

On a quarterly basis, the countryʼs GDP grew 4.3%, matching an earlier estimate and recovering from a record 10.1% contraction in the prior period.
