Australian economy continues to grow: ABS
Latest ABS figures show that GDP, in seasonally adjusted volume terms, grew 0.9% in the December quarter 2009, after growing 0.3% in the September quarter.
Growth in the expenditure measure of GDP was driven by a 3.5% increase in private investment , a 10.2% increase in public investment and a 0.7% increase in household expenditure. Offsetting these increases was a fall in net exports. The fall in net exports was due to imports (up 7.7%) growing faster than exports (up 1.7%).
The industries that provided the main contribution to growth in the production measure of GDP in the December quarter were manufacturing with a 5.1% increase in seasonally adjusted volume terms and wholesale trade with a 3.6% increase in seasonally adjusted volume terms.
