Croatia's gross domestic product (GDP) expanded by a record 16.1% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2021, the first period of growth in over a year, reflecting a low base year triggered by the coronavirus crisis and the ongoing economic recovery, the Zagreb-based Croatian Bureau of Statistics (Crostat) said on Friday.
Household consumption jumped 18.4% and fixed investment surged by 18.3%.
In addition, public spending advanced by 4% and net external demand contributed positively to the GDP as exports rose more than imports.
On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, GDP fell slightly by 0.2%.
