a third of a percentage point/ slightly positive?

 

In 2011, the IMF concluded the spillover of the Fed’s first round of QE onto its trading partners was significantly positive, raising their output by as much as a third of a percentage point, while the spillover of the second round was slightly positive.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"a third of a percentage point" = How much is this?
= or should I ask " how much percentage is this? "

"slightly positive" = just above zero? percentage?

Please help me. =]
