A report from Oxford Economics predicts the UK will strive ahead of its Eurozone peers over the next five years.
The UK’s economy is forecast to grow 1.8 per cent between 2017-2021 as Britain leaves the EU.
By comparison the Eurozone’s economy is expected to grow 1.5 per cent with the EU’s economic powerhouse Germany to increase by just 1.3 per cent.
According to the Oxford Economics’ forecasts France’s economy will grow 1.4 per cent with crisis-ridden Italy expected to go up 1.1 per cent.
And in another report Britain’s economy is due to grow by 2.7 per cent per year, if the UK goes ahead with devolution and drives powers away from London to the heart of England’s shire counties.
Leaders of England’s largest councils are calling on Government to unleash their economic potential.
Understanding County Economies, commissioned by the County Councils Network (CCN), shows full devolution to country areas could see Britain’s economy grow.
