Year on year growth fell from a revised 4.4 per cent in the September quarter to 3.5 per cent in the December quarter. Quarterly growth was driven by domestic factors. Gross capital formation increased by 7.0 per cent, notably private sector investment, which contributed 1.3 percentage points to growth. Public sector investment contributed 0.4 percentage points. Final consumption expenditure increased by 1.1 per cent, with household and government consumption up by 0.6 and 2.6 per cent respectively. A 7.0 per cent rise in imports and a 0.4 per cent fall in exports resulted in net exports subtracting 1.7 percentage points from quarterly GDP growth.
