Gross domestic product (GDP) grew 0.2% sequentially in the fourth quarter, much slower than the 11.7% expansion in the third quarter. This was the second consecutive expansion.
On a yearly basis, GDP shrank 2.7% year-on-year in the fourth quarter, following a 2.4% contraction in the previous three-month period. According to figures, employment grew 0.2% sequentially but decreased 2.1% from the last year in the fourth quarter.
