The article reports on the slow increase rate of gross domestic product by 1.7 percent during the fourth quarter of 2005. The final figure has matched to the International Financial Review IFR Markets' expectation, which was the slowest increase in growth since the final quarter of 2002. According to the author, the fourth-quarter slowdown in growth reflected a decline in consumer spending on durable goods.
