|GDP GROWTH Britain ended 2016 growing more quickly than previously thought.amid signs that factories and exports have enjoyed a resurgence since the vote to leave the European Union, according to official figures. In its revision to GDP for the final quarter of last year, the Office for National Statistics upgraded growth from its initial 0.6% estimate to 0.7%, the fastest pace of expansion in a year, confounding the Treasury pre referendum warning that a pro Brexit vote would lead to recession. Exports rose by 4.1% compared with previous quarter and imports fell by 0.4%, in a clear sign that the collapse of the pound has improved the competitiveness of UK trade. There was also strong growth in manufacturing of 1.2%. Elizabeth Martins, an economist at HSBC, said that data confirmed the UK entered 2017 on a strong footing.
CONSUMER CONFIDENCE Consumers have started 2017 with renewed confidence in their personal financial situation but remain concerned about the wider economy, despite record high employment and the UK economy growing faster than any other G7 nation in 2016. The GfK consumer confidence index rose two points in January to reach a balance of -5 having plunged to -12 in July after the Brexit vote.The index was pushed up by confidence in personal finances, with expectations for the year ahead in this rising three points from a balance of zero in December.
HOUSE BUILDING The building industry received its fastest rise in new orders in almost a year in December, even as the fall in sterling drove up the cost of imported materials to the highest level in five and a half years. The purchasing managers index for the construction sector rose to 54.2 last month, up from 52.8 in November, marking the fastest pace of expectation since March. The upbeat outlook from 200 companies in the sector comes after similarly positive stance from the manufacturing industry, where activity rose at the fastest pace in two and a half years according to its PMI survey.
