Year-on-year growth rates

2.        GVA growth rate for the fourth quarter of 2022 over the corresponding quarter of 2021 is estimated at 8.3%. The growth is mainly due to:

​​​​​ “Accommodation and food service activities" (4.3 percentage points);
“Manufacturing" (1.7 percentage points);
​​“Financial and insurance activities" (0.7 percentage point);
“Wholesale and retail trade; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles" (0.5 percentage point);

4.      Investment (Gross fixed capital formation) further went down by 0.1% after that of 0.3% observed in the previous quarter. The 0.1% contraction resulted from a decline in “Building and construction work" (-6.2%), partly offset by an increase in “Machinery and equipment" (13.8%).

​5.        Exports of goods and services went up by 28.3%, after that of 40.4% registered in the previous quarter. The growth of 28.3% was due to increases in exports of goods (9.7%) and exports of services (38.0%).
