Colombia's economy grew 1.1% in first quarter, gov't says

BOGOTA, May 15 (Reuters) - Colombia’s economy expanded 1.1% in the first quarter, the government’s statistics agency said on Friday, falling short of the median market expectation.

Analysts had predicted growth of 1.5% during the quarter, as the economy was affected by the coronavirus shutdown that began in March.
