October 2015 Second Quarter of 2015 (April, May, June) Ontario Ministry of Finance Table of Contents Second Quarter 2015 Summary Real Expenditure DetailsIncome DetailsEconomy-Wide Price Details Production By Industry Details List of Tables Analytical Tables and Charts 2001:Q1-2015:Q2 Ontario’s real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increased 0.4% (1.4% annualized) in the second quarter of 2015, after no growth in the first quarter when economic activity was dampened by unusually harsh weather, supply chain disruptions from the U.S. west coast port labour dispute and retooling at some of Ontario’s auto assembly plants.

Household spending advanced 0.9% in the quarter, driven by a 3.2% increase in durable goods spending. Spending on semi-durables (+1.1%) and services (+1.0%) also contributed to the overall rise in consumer expenditures. Investment in residential construction rose 1.0%, following a 1.3% advance in the first quarter. Household Spending Accelerates In Second Quarter Highlights. Economy of Singapore. Singapore could thus be said to rely on an extended concept of intermediary trade to Entrepôt trade, by purchasing raw goods and refining them for re-export, such as in the wafer fabrication industry and oil refining.

Singapore also has a strategic port which makes it more competitive than many of its neighbours in carrying out such entrepot activities. Singapore has the highest trade to GDP ratio in the world, averaging around 400% during 2008–11.[33] The Port of Singapore is the third-busiest in the world by cargo tonnage. In addition, Singapore's port infrastructure and skilled workforce, which is due to the success of the country's education policy in producing skilled workers, is also fundamental in this aspect as they provide easier access to markets for both importing and exporting, and also provide the skill(s) needed to refine imports into exports. Economic history[edit] Singapore's economic strategy produced real growth averaging 8.0% from 1960 to 1999.

Sectors[edit] Economy of Qatar. Map showing the mineral resources of Qatar. Petroleum and liquefied natural gas are the cornerstones of Qatar's economy and account for more than 70% of total government revenue, more than 60% of gross domestic product, and roughly 85% of export earnings. Proved oil reserves of 15 billion barrels (588,000,000 m3) should ensure continued output at current levels for 23 years. Oil has given Qatar a per capita GDP that ranks among the highest in the world. Qatar's proved reserves of natural gas exceed 7000 km3, more than 5% of the world total and the third-largest reserves of any country in the world.

Production and export of natural gas are becoming increasingly important. Macro-economic trend[edit] Qatar is now the richest country in the world.[8] Current GDP per capita registered a world record-breaking peak growth of 1,156% in the 70s.[9] This became quickly unsustainable and Qatar's current GDP per capita contracted 53% in the 80s. Energy sector[edit] Industry[edit] Islamic finance[edit] Economy of Norway. Norway's GDP, 1979 to 2004. Source: Statistics Norway. The economy of Norway is a developed mixed economy with state-ownership in strategic areas of the economy. Although sensitive to global business cycles, the economy of Norway has shown robust growth since the start of the industrial era. Shipping has long been a support of Norway's export sector, but much of Norway's economic growth has been fueled by an abundance of natural resources, including petroleum exploration and production, hydroelectric power, and fisheries.

Agriculture and traditional heavy manufacturing have suffered relative decline compared to services and oil-related industries, and the public sector is among the largest in the world as a percentage of the overall gross domestic product. The country has a very high standard of living compared with other European countries, and a strongly integrated welfare system. History[edit] Pre-industrial revolution[edit] Industrial revolution[edit] Oil-exporting country[edit] Economy of Macau. The economy of Macau has remained one of the most open in the world since its reversion to China in 1999. Apparel exports and gambling-related tourism are mainstays of the economy. Since Macau has little arable land and few natural resources, it depends on mainland China for most of its food, fresh water, and energy imports.

Japan and Hong Kong are the main suppliers of raw materials and capital goods. Although Macau was hit hard by the 1997–98 Asian financial crisis and the global downturn in 2001, its economy grew approximately 13.1% annually on average between 2001 and 2006.[4] Macau is a full Member of the World Trade Organization.[5] Public Security has greatly improved after handover to People's Republic of China.[6] With the tax revenue from the profitable gambling industry, the Macau government is able to introduce the social welfare program of 15 years of free education to all Macau citizens.[7] History[edit] Labor and employment[edit] The monetary system[edit] Trade[edit] Economy of Luxembourg. The economy of Luxembourg is largely dependent on the banking, steel, and industrial sectors. Luxembourgers enjoy the second highest per capita gross domestic product in the world (CIA 2007 est.), behind Qatar.

Luxembourg is seen as a diversified industrialized nation, contrasting the oil boom in Qatar, the major monetary source of the southwest Asian state. Although Luxembourg in tourist literature is aptly called the "Green Heart of Europe", its pastoral land coexists with a highly industrialized and export-intensive economy.

Luxembourg enjoys a degree of economic prosperity very rare among industrialized democracies. In 2009, a budget deficit of 5% resulted from government measures to stimulate the economy, especially the banking sector, as a result of the world economic crisis. This was however reduced to 1.4% in 2010.[8] History[edit] Sectors[edit] In 2013 the GDP was $60.54 billion of which services, including the financial sector, produced 86%. Banking[edit] Steel[edit] Tourism[edit] Economy of Sweden. The economy of Sweden is a developed export-oriented economy aided by timber, hydropower, and iron ore.These constitute the resource base of an economy oriented toward foreign trade.

The main industries include motor vehicles, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, industrial machines, precision equipment, chemical goods, home goods and appliances, forestry, iron, and steel. Traditionally a modern agricultural economy that employed over half the domestic workforce, today Sweden further develops engineering, mine, steel, and pulp industries that are competitive internationally, as evidenced by companies like Ericsson, ASEA/ABB, SKF, Alfa Laval, AGA, and Dyno Nobel.[13] History[edit] In the 19th century Sweden evolved from a largely agricultural economy into the beginnings of an industrialized, urbanized country.

In 2009, Sweden had the world's tenth highest GDP per capita in nominal terms and was in 14th place in terms of purchasing power parity.[21] Crisis of the 1990s[edit] Government[edit] Economy of Denmark. Denmark's main exports[11] are: industrial production/manufactured goods 73.3% (of which machinery and instruments were 21.4%, and fuels, chemicals, etc. 26%); agricultural products and others for consumption 18.7% (in 2009 meat and meat products were 5.5% of total export; fish and fish products 2.9%).[12] Denmark is a net exporter of food and energy and has since the 1990s had a balance of payments surplus. The accumulated value of service and merchandise exports in 2013 amounted to 54% of GDP, and imports in 2013 amounted to 49% of GDP. Notable among the service exports are container shipping.

Overview[edit] This thoroughly modern market economy features high-tech agriculture, up-to-date small-scale and corporate industry, extensive government welfare measures, comfortable living standards, and high dependence on foreign trade. Denmark is a net exporter of food. Denmark chose not to join the 11 other European Union members who launched the euro on 1 January 1999. Welfare state[edit] Economy of Australia. Throughout this article, the unqualified term "dollar" and the $ symbol refer to the Australian dollar unless as noted. The economy of Australia is one of the largest mixed market economies in the world, with a GDP of US$1.525 trillion as of 2014.[21] Australia's total wealth is 6.4 trillion dollars.[22] In 2012, it was the 12th largest national economy by nominal GDP[23] and the 17th-largest measured by PPP-adjusted GDP, about 1.7% of the world economy. Australia is the 19th-largest importer and 19th-largest exporter. The Reserve Bank of Australia publishes forecasts of the economy quarterly.[24] The Australian economy is dominated by its service sector, comprising 68% of GDP.

The mining sector represents 7%[25] of GDP; including services to mining, the total value of the Mining Industry in 2009-10 was 8.4% of GDP.[26] Economic growth is largely dependent on the mining sector and agricultural sector (12% of GDP[27]) with the products to be exported mainly to the East Asian market.[28]
