Taiwan's gross domestic product jumped 7.47% in the second quarter, slightly easing from an 8.92% rise in the first three months of the year, preliminary data showed.
The latest data keeps Taiwan among the world's best-performing economies so far this year, even as a recent Covid-19 resurgence in the island led to tightened restrictions.
The rise has been driven by the strong expansion in domestic production and better-than-expected exports, even though the local outbreak in recent months weighed on growth momentum.
On a seasonally-adjusted basis, the economy in the second quarter fell 2.03% from the previous quarter.
