Compared to the growth observed in the first three quarters of 2014, the GDP growth rate observed in the fourth quarter was slower, which was due to poorer performance results of wholesale and retail trade, repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles, transportation and storage, accommodation and food service enterprises. The growth in GDP was mainly conditioned by construction and industry.
