Latvia's economy rose by 0.7% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2023, following an upwardly revised 1.2% advance in the previous three-month period, a flash estimate from the Central Statistical Bureau (CSB) on Thursday show.
Growth in services (+0.4%) was partly offset by a drop in goods-producing sectors (-1.3%).
On a seasonally adjusted quarterly basis, the country's gross domestic product (GDP) increased by 0.5% in Q1, after an upwardly revised 1.2% rise in the prior quarter, the Riga-based agency said.
