Strong GDP growth continued in the United States (0.8%) and Japan (1.2%).

GDP growth was more subdued in both the Euro area and the European Union (0.2%). Italy returned to positive GDP growth in the first quarter of this year (0.5%), after the small decline of the previous quarter, while the pace of the recovery eased in both France and the United Kingdom and was unchanged in Germany.
