TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Positive contributions mainly came from domestic demand as gross fixed capital formation increased markedly, especially in construction and machinery and equipment. Also, household final consumption expenditure rose slightly and general government final consumption expenditure was markedly up at the end of the year. However, development of foreign trade did not make a positive contribution to growth in the fourth quarter, as exports and imports of goods and services increased nearly at the same rate in the quarter-on-quarter comparison.
