News in RSS

In the second quarter of 2013, the business investment rate was 19.2% in the euro area, compared with 18.8% in the first quarter of 2013.

This rise was the result of a higher increase in investment (+3.2%) than in gross value added (+0.9%) while total stocks (materials, supplies and finished goods) fell. In the EU27 the investment rate was 18.9% in the second quarter 2013, compared with 18.8% in the previous quarter. These data come from a detailed set of seasonally adjusted quarterly European sector accounts released by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, and the European Central Bank (ECB).
