Slovakia's Q1 GDP growth highest in the EU after revision

Gross domestic product (GDP) of the European Union and GDP of the eurozone rose by 0.7 percent in the first quarter of this year compared to the previous quarter, according to a revised estimate by the European Union's Statistical Office, Eurostat, based on seasonally adjusted data. GDP grew 2.3 percent in the EU and 2.1 percent in the eurozone in a year-on-year comparison. Slovakia's economy grew by 8.7 percent year-on-year in the first three months of this year, based on unadjusted data. This was the highest increase among the EU states that provided data to Eurostat, ahead of Romania (8.2 percent), and Lithuania (6.8 percent). SITA
