Taiwan 3Q GDP growth misses forecast at 1.58%, paper says

Taiwan’s gross domestic product (GDP) expanded 1.58 percent in the third quarter from a year earlier, less than the 2.47 percent that had been forecast by the government in August, China Securities Journal reported Friday, citing data released Thursday by the island’s Directorate General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics. The figure suggests that the economy has not improved in the second half as expected, and that it may be difficult to achieve full-year growth of 2 percent, the paper said.
