Estonian Economic Growth Revised Up For Third Quarter to 8.5%

December 09, 2011

Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Estonia’s economy grew at a faster pace in the third quarter than previously estimated as a recovery in construction helped offset dwindling demand among the Baltic nation’s Nordic trading partners.

Gross domestic product rose 8.5 percent from a year earlier compared with a preliminary estimate of 7.9 percent and growth of 8.4 percent in the second quarter, the Statistics Office in the capital, Tallinn, said today on its website. Output increased a seasonally adjusted 1.2 percent from the previous quarter, compared with a preliminary estimate of 0.8 percent.
