On the consumption side, consumption grew by 5.2%, investment by 9.6% and government spending by 5.0%, adding 2.4, 2.7 and 0.5 percentage points to growth, respectively. The expansion of imports (5.6%) exceeded that of exports (1.4%), so the development of the foreign trade balance pulled back economic growth by 3.2 percentage points.
