British economy demonstrates few signs of comeback as rate lift decision gets closer

The British economy demonstrates few signs of recovering from lethargy due to the fact that the Bank of England is actually considering lifting interest rates. That’s what the British Chambers of Commerce unveiled on Friday.

The BCC's Quarterly Economic Survey of businesses informed that sales at services firms, making up the core of the UK economy were quite robust in the third quarter.

However, there weren’t any visible signs of a pick-up in investment or pay pressures, both of which Britain’s key bank expects to inch up greatly in 2018.

In general, the BCC labeled the poll as "uninspiring", pointing out that currency fluctuations, political uncertainty along with Brexit definitely affect UK businesses.

Notwithstanding confounding estimates that the 2016 vote to break up with the European Union would cause a sudden slowdown, the British economy has struggled in 2017, reporting its worst first-half performance since 2012.
