In quarter-on-quarter terms, the GDP of the Basque Country in the third quarter of 2011 remained unchanged (0.0%). This figure is also two-tenths less than the change registered in the previous quarter and identical to that registered by the Spanish economy, according to the estimation carried out for the third quarter by the Bank of Spain.

This year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter behaviour of GDP is a result of a negative change in construction and a deceleration of industry, together with a better performance by the services sector.
