Real GDP in the OECD area (see note) increased by 0.5% in the first quarter of 2017, compared with 0.7% in the previous quarter, according to provisional estimates, mainly reflecting reduced contributions from private consumption (0.2 percentage point against 0.5 in the previous quarter) and

 investment (0.2 percentage point against 0.3).  Net exports provided an additional 0.1 percentage point to overall GDP growth while the contributions from governmentconsumption and stockbuilding were negligible.
