UK growth: a new chapter


The UK Economy is at a critical juncture. Leaving the EU creates economic challenges that necessitate widespread policy change. But this also generates an opportunity to tackle some of the long-standing challenges which have resulted in the UK’s productivity lagging behind our major competitors. Decisions made in the next year will have a lasting impact on the UK’s economic trajectory for years to come. If the government gets these decisions right, the economy will be more productive, more equitable and more environmentally sustainable.
