For 2013, growth rate was estimated at 6.87 percent, up from 6.58 percent in 2012.

The non-oil sector remained the major driver of growth, recording 8.73 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2013. The growth drivers in the non-oil sector remained agriculture; wholesale and retail trade; and services which contributed 1.64, 2.34, and 2.66 percent, respectively. 

The relatively robust growth performance despite sluggish global recovery reflected the continuing favorable climatic conditions for increased agricultural production, sustained outcome of banking sector reforms and macroeconomic stability.

GDP Annual Growth Rate | Notes
The annual growth rate in Gross Domestic Product measures the increase in value of the goods and services produced by an economy over the period of a year. Therefore, unlike the commonly used quarterly GDP growth rate the annual GDP growth rate takes into account a full year of economic activity, thus avoiding the need to make any type of seasonal adjustment.
