Gross Domestic Product

The gross domestic product (GDP) is an indicator of economic activity which makes it possible to measure and compare economic development levels in different countries. GDP is calculated at current prices as well as at previous year's prices, making it possible to represent economic growth rates without taking into account the influence of prices.
