Slow but consistent growth across Europe is evident in the latest batch of quarterly GDP figures released by Eurostat.

For the first time in a year, no economy has shown a fall in GDP. Instead, all have grown between 0.1% and 0.8% compared with the second quarter of 2016.

 Which European economies are growing fastest?

The seasonally adjusted figures show Bulgaria and Portugal as top performers with 0.8% growth, closely followed by Cyprus, The Netherlands, Slovakia and Spain with 0.7%.

The larger EU economies fared less well. German growth fell to 0.2%, the same as France. The UK grew by 0.5%

GDP rose 0.4% in the EU as a whole during the third quarter of 2016, compared with the previous quarter. That compares with 0.7% in the U.S.
