The latest OECD Economic Survey of the United Kingdom, to be published on Wednesday 14 October, analyses the twin challenges facing the UK economy from the COVID-19 pandemic and the country’s impending departure from the EU Single Market. The Survey discusses the likely impact on economic output and jobs, suggests ways to strengthen the recovery and looks at the potential impact of policy responses on GDP and inequality. A Special Chapter examines the long-standing challenge of weak productivity growth and suggests solutions.
The Survey will be published at 11am UK time (12:00 Paris time) on Wednesday 14 October when an Overview with key findings and charts will be freely accessible at: www.oecd.org/economy/united-kingdom-economic-snapshot/. You are invited to include this link in news articles.
