Portugal  QoQ

The increase in Portugal’s quarter-on-quarter GDP in the second quarter of 2017 was 0.3%, the same as in the United Kingdom. It is the worse performance among EU’s member States.

The 2.9% GDP increase in the second quarter was the largest economic growth out of the last 17 years, when making an homologous comparison. However, if a quarter on quarter (QoQ) comparison is made, growth stood at 0.3%. The performance of the Portuguese economy was the worse among its European Union partners, along with the United Kingdom. These data were disclosed this Thursday by Eurostat.
