The GDP of OECD countries grows by 0.5% in the 3rd quarter compared to the previous one

The countries that make up the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) recorded economic growth of 0.5% in the third quarter, compared to the previous three months.

The result repeats the increase of 0.5% observed in the second quarter compared to the first, the entity reported this Tuesday (21).

The preliminary figure for the third quarter also shows that only the G7 countries recorded growth of 0.6% compared to the second.

In the second quarter, this increase was 0.4%. This result can be explained by the acceleration of activity observed in the United States, underlines the OECD.
