The trend in construction continues to show lower growth than that of the economy in general. In the third quarter, the fall of the accumulated GDP of the sector is -1.2% as an annual rate, largely due to civil works, which have fallen by 11%. The building will close with a growth of 0.5%. Civil works will not rebind due to the adjustments in public expenditure. Meanwhile, the deceleration of the building is what has consolidated the fall in the sector. The expected trend for the sector in 2018 is a slight fall.
