In the first quarter of 2019, the Federationʼs gross domestic product (GDP) grew by an annual 3.4% in real terms. In seasonally-adjusted terms, GDP increased by 0.6% on a quarterly comparison basis in January-March, after growing by 0.9% in October-December.
The largest real rate of growth of the gross value added in the first quarter of 2020 was recorded in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector; information and communication sectors; and financial and insurance activities.
