Latest Updates

UK gross domestic product grew by 4.8 percent on quarter in April to June 2021, recovering from a 1.6 percent contraction in the previous three-month period, as activity and demand rebounded following the easing of coronavirus restrictions. Household consumption jumped 7.3 percent (vs -4.6 percent in Q1) and public spending advanced 6.1 percent (vs 1.5 percent in Q1). Meanwhile, fixed investment continued to contract (-0.5 percent vs -1.7 percent) despite an increase in business investment, and net trade contributed negatively to the GDP as imports rose more than exports. In output terms, the largest contributors to this increase were from wholesale and retail trade, accommodation and food service activities, and education. The level of GDP remained 4.4 percent below pre-pandemic levels.
