Thus household final consumption expenditure fell by 0.7% instead of an increase of 6.9%, with a negative contribution to growth of 0.4 points instead of a positive contribution of 4 points.

Final consumption by general government, on the other hand, posted a slowdown in its growth rate, dropping from 7.2% last year to 3.3%, with a positive contribution to growth of 0.6 points instead of 1.4 points the previous year.
In terms of foreign trade in goods and services in volume, both exports and imports recorded strong increases during the year 2022.
Thus, exports of goods and services increased by 20.4% instead of 7.9%, with a contribution to growth of 6.8 points instead of a contribution of 2.4 points a year earlier. . For their part, imports increased by 9% instead of 10.4%, with a contribution to growth of 3.8 points instead of a contribution of 4 points last year.
