The Scottish economy suffered a contraction in the fourth quarter 1999, in GDP as a whole and in the main service and manufacturing sectors. The UK economy, in contrast, displayed positive growth with both services and manufacturing outperforming their Scottish counterparts.

These are the principal conclusions of the latest quarterly GDP data from the Scottish Executive.
