According to an official release of the Catalan government, economy in Catalonia has grown 1.1% year-on-year during the first trimester of 2011.

However, if compared with the previous trimester, growth has been nil (0.0%), which may indicate a recent trend to stagnancy after some recovery signs in the previous trimesters.
