Colombia's growth exceeds expectations

Friday, September 20, 2013

Colombia's gross domestic product expanded more quickly than expected in the second quarter as farming and construction picked up.

The nation's economic output grew 4.2 percent from April to June compared with the same period a year earlier, the national statistics agency DANE said.

The upbeat results follow disappointing first quarter growth after lackluster demand for key Colombian exports like coal and a month-long strike at the country's top coal producer Cerrejón.
