The quick estimates for yearly growth was as well bigger than the 2.1% predicted in a survey of nearly 30 economists by Reuters.

Economic expansion was more powerful in Holland and Latvia against the first quarter, the economy of Spain also showed growth higher than the average. Italy and France were a little lower than the mean figures, and Germany, the giant of the euro zone, expanded at the level of euro zone’s average in the second quarter.
