Cumulated over the entire 2014, the country’s GDP increased 2% whilst the gross value added climbed 2.6%. The rise was mostly driven by the manufacturing industry focusing on the foreign demand (+1.5 pp). Compared to 2013, GVA growth was largely affected by agriculture, forestry and fisheries (+0.2 pp) and also by the construction sector for the first time since 2010 (+0.1 pp).
