The Jamaican economy grew by 1.8% in the April to June quarter of 2014.
This, according to the Statistical Institute of Jamaica, STATIN.
This is significantly higher than the 1.2% initially announced by the Planning Institute of Jamaica in August.
STATIN says this performance reflected an improvement of 6.3% in output in the Goods Producing industries and a 0.5% increase in the Services industries.
When compared to the first quarter of 2014, the economy improved by 1.4%.
The Goods Producing industries were positively impacted by increased output of nearly 17% in Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing.
Manufacturing and Construction also grew, but the Mining & Quarrying industry recorded a decline.
Increased output was recorded for all industries within the Services industries with the exception of the Producers of Government Services.
