Latest Updates

Britain's quarterly economic growth was revised slightly higher to 0.4 percent in the third quarter of 2019, from a preliminary estimate of 0.3 percent, as net trade made a larger positive contribution than previously estimated. The expansion was also supported by household consumption, while gross capital formation and government expenditure contributed negatively to GDP growth.
