I am pleased to see that the IMF now predicts that Britain will be enjoying the fastest growth this year than any other of the richest G7 countries.
This is a great boost that The International Monetary Fund (IMF) now predicts that Britain will be enjoying the fastest growth this year than any other of the richest G7 countries.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects that the rate of growth for Britain will now be 2.9% in 2014.
That does not mean that the effects of the recession are behind us, but it does mean that there is good reason to be more optimistic about the future.
Also the office of national statistics (ONS) confirmed that manufacturing output grew by 1% in February from the previous month.
I note also with interest that mortgage products are still very competitive, with clear indications that house prices are once again on the increase.
The demand for property has dramatically improved, as many new buyers including first time buyers enter that housing market.
The property market is also continuing to attract increasing attention from international buyers.
Many predictions are suggesting that the housing market is now entering a much more positive and stable position, which in turn will have a good effect on the economy.
I am sure therefore that George Osborne must be having a smile on his face with all these good statistics coming through.
I guess the best way to look at the future is – steady as she goes. Lessons from the recession about overspending will ensure that many don’t fall into that trap again.
With spring in the air, coupled with these statistics, this should at least put a smile on many faces.
Britain I am sure you will agree is – Great Britain.
