Last year, household consumption and investments pushed the economy’s growth, while net exports detracted performance – Németh Dávid senior analyst at K & H Bank commented the latest economic growth data on M1 news channel on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the Central Statistical Office (KSH) raised GDP growth data for 2017 as a whole by 0.1 percentage points from the previous 4.0 percent to 4.1 percent.
