Taiwan Q1 GDP up 3.46%

Taipei, April 30 (CNA) Taiwan's gross domestic product (GDP) for the first quarter of this year rose 3.46 percent from a year earlier, lower than an earlier forecast of a 3.50 percent increase, according to an advance estimate released by the government Thursday. The Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS) said that the lower-than-expected first-quarter GDP growth data reflects declines in both domestic demand and bilateral trade. After seasonal adjustments, Taiwan's first-quarter GDP rose 1.10 percent from the fourth quarter of last year, the DGBAS said. (By Frances Huang)
