The double dip recession in the UK economy has ended with a Third Quarter GDP increase of 1.0%. This was the encouraging news this week from the ONS’s preliminary statistics. Analysts had been expecting a positive figure but the size of the increase took many by surprise. Nevertheless, Government ministers welcomed the news with guarded optimism.
The release of the GDP figure as we went to press acts as a backdrop to other statistics on the economy that we highlight in this week’s Friday Brief. Attention is also focused on the fast approaching MTA Forecast Seminar on 8th November at the University of Warwick. There are still places on this not to be missed event so sign up now to avoid disappointment.
The Brief also includes invitations to a CELIMO mission to India and to a Meet the Funder event.
Have a good weekend.
