May 13 Greece’s economy contracted by 0.4 percent in the first quarter compared to the last three months of 2015, a flash estimate by the country’s statistics service ELSTAT showed on Friday.

The flash quarter-on-quarter GDP reading was in line with market forecasts. Economists polled by Reuters were expecting a 0.5 percent decline in gross domestic product.

The data showed the economy shrank at an annual 1.3 percent pace from January to March, at a faster clip from a 0.8 percent decline in last year’s final quarter.

Its performance was in line with market expectations of a 1.3 percent contraction. ***************************************************************
