The first quarter of 2021 was marked by a moderate recovery in economic activity, reflected in GDP growth of 2.4% compared to the same quarter in 2020.
On the supply side, this change resulted from the performances of all the sectors which recorded a positive growth during this quarter, compared to the same period in 2020. The primary sector, 3.4% after 2.0% the previous quarter, recorded a 0.5 point contribution to growth during this quarter. The secondary sector with a growth of 2.0%, after 4.4% in the previous quarter, contributed 0.5 point to GDP growth while the tertiary sector (2.2% after 1.9%) contributed 1.1 point to quarterly growth.
The good performance of the primary sector was the result of the good performance of all its branches, mainly industrial and export agriculture, and sylviculture and logging, each contributing 0.2 point to the sector’s growth.
