 Household expenditures had the greatest contribution to the economic growth of this year's first nine months, of respectively 6.1 pct, given that final consumption increased by 9.7 pct, informs a press release of the National Institute of Statistics (INS) sent on Tuesday. 

The Gross Domestic Product went up 7 pct in real terms, January through September 2017, as compared to last year's similar interval, amounting to over 696.7 billion lei. 

"As far as GDP use is concerned, the increase was mainly the effect of the households' final consumption spending, which advanced by 9.7 pct, contributing +6.1 pct to GDP growth and the gross fixed capital formation, with a +0.8 pct contribution, as a consequence of its increase by 3.8 pct in volume. The net export had a negative contribution to GDP growth (-0.6 pct), a consequence of the 9.6 pct rise of the goods and services exports correlated with a higher increase of the volume of goods and services imports (10.8 pct)," INS informs. 

All branches of the economy contributed to the GDP growth, with positive contributions as follows: the industry (+1.8 pct), with a 23.2 pct share in GDP formation and with a 7.6 pct rise in activity volume, wholesale and retail trade, repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles, transportation and storage, hotels and restaurants (+1.6pct), with a 18.2 pct share of the GDP formation and a 8.7 pct increase in activity volume.
