(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 3 – ISTAT said Wednesday that Italy’s
seasonally and calendar adjusted Gross Domestic Product (GDP)
decreased by 1.9% in the fourth quarter of 2020 with respect to
the previous three months and by 6.6% in comparison with the
same period in 2019.
    The quarter-on-quarter figure was slightly better than the
previous forecast of a drop of 2%.
    The national statistics agency said the GDP fall in the fourth
quarter was caused by “the new measures to contain the health
emergency” of COVID-19.
    “The carry-over annual GDP growth for 2021 is equal to +2.3%,”
ISTAT said. (ANSA).
