April 8, 2021
Economic activity rose 2.4% in February, accelerating from January’s 2.2% and suggesting that the economy continued to gain traction midway through the first quarter. Moreover, the print marked the sixth consecutive month of growth and was driven by activity in the trade and repair of vehicles; manufacturing; and construction and agricultural sectors.
On a 12-month rolling basis, however, economic activity contracted 1.8% in February, down from the 1.7% fall recorded in January.
