The UK economy contracted by 1.5% in the first quarter, slightly outperforming expectations, even as output rebounded by a stronger-than-forecast 2.1% in March ahead of an expected reopening of the economy, the Office for National Statistics said Wednesday. All output components contracted in Q1, led by a 2.0% slump in services, which shaved 1.9 percentage points from GDP.
The UK lagged the US (+1.6% in Q1) and the euro zone (-0.6%) over the opening months of the year, but outperformed Germany, which suffered a 1.7% fall in output.
