The eurozone economy grew 0.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013, enough of an improvement on 0.1 percent in the previous quarter to suggest that modest recovery remains on track, official data showed on Friday.
Analysts had expected a gain of 0.2-0.3 percent.
In the wider European Union, the economy expanded 0.4 percent, after 0.3 percent in the third quarter, the Eurostat statistics agency said.
Compared with fourth quarter 2012, the then 17-nation eurozone economy expanded year-on-year by 0.5 percent, with the EU up 1.0 percent.
