Singapore Q3 GDP expands 6.5% y/y, largely matching forecasts

SINGAPORE, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Singapore’s economy grew 6.5% in the third quarter, preliminary official data showed on Thursday, broadly in line with economists’ forecast.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected an expansion of 6.6% year-on-year for the third quarter.

Gross domestic product had jumped 15.2% year-on-year in the second quarter, due to a coronavirus-induced low base in the same quarter last year. (Reporting by Chen Lin in Singapore; Editing by Sam Holmes)
