Denmark's gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 0.5 percent in the first quarter of 2011, compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, the Danish national statistical agency said on Tuesday.

The result marks a contraction in Danish GDP for two quarters in a row.

The country registered a seasonally adjusted real GDP growth of minus 0.5 percent in Q1 2011 compared to Q4 2010, which followed a 0.2-percent fall in GDP of Q4 2010 as against the previous quarter, according to data from Danmarks Statistik.

Private and public consumption, as well as investments, fell in the three months ending March 31, 2011. Both private and public sector spending declined by 0.8 percent, while gross investments fell by 8.3 percent.

Having registered two successive quarters of negative growth, Denmark can be said to be officially in recession, Danish financial daily Borsen.dk commented.
