(MENAFN) Bahrain's Central Informatics Organization's head, Mohammed al-Amer, stated that in the third quarter, the country's real economy expanded 0.7 percent from the second quarter, reported Arabian Business citing state news agency BNA.

Al-Amer said that the growth is compared with a contraction of 1.3 percent in the second quarter.

He added that the Kingdom's real gross domestic product grew 3.1 percent in the third quarter on annual basis; however, it represented a decline from the 4.3-percent gain posted in the previous quarter.

He attributed the annual growth in GDP to non-oil economic activities, which rose 5.9 percent in constant prices.

The country's hydrocarbon sector's production dipped 7.1 percent on annual basis as a result of a decline of almost 10 percent in crude output from the Abu Safa field, which contributes with 70 percent of the Kingdom's budget revenue.
