SINGAPORE -- Singapore's economy grew 0.1% in the April-June quarter from a year ago, marking the lowest rate in 10 years as U.S.-China trade tensions hit electronic and other manufacturers, according to preliminary data released Friday by the government.

The latest real gross domestic product growth rate was lower than the 1.1% expansion in the January-March period, and the lowest since the April-June quarter in 2009 (minus 1.2%) when the world was hit by the financial crisis.
