Comment on GDP stats from Adzuna: "Growth should continue - as long as businesses aren't spooked by the challenges ahead"
Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna comments: “Britain’s economy fared well in the final quarter of 2015. Despite economic instability in China, and business uncertainty ahead of a vote on Brexit, British GDP continues to grow, albeit at a slower rate".
“Wages have started to recover as workers receive overdue pay rises – and the end of last year saw the beginnings of advertised salary growth for jobseekers. Most Brits have more money to spend, as is evident in increased services industry output. The construction industry saw growth stall slightly in Q4, but major projects and housing initiatives planned for this year should lift the sector. Growth should continue – as long as businesses aren’t spooked by the challenges ahead – through investment in infrastructure, technology, and most importantly, people.”
