German term or phrase: das BIP-Wachstum hat sich auf hohem Niveau leicht abgeschwächt
"Im ersten Quartal 2008 hat sich das BIP Wachstum auf hohem Niveau leicht abgeschwächt."

From report on GDP growth in CEE.

I'm interested here in knowing how you would translate 'auf hohem Niveau', particularly in light of 'leicht'. I had originally thought of 'weakened a little' but am not clear how 'auf hohem Niveau' fits in...any ideas?

Thanks
