UK economy in its best shape for six years - let's keep it that way

Figures released today by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show that the UK economy grew at a rate of 3.2% in the second quarter of 2014. This is the best performance since 2007, before the financial crisis hit. Britain’s economy is now 0.2% larger than in the first quarter of 2008, which was its previous highest prior to the credit crunch. There have been the usual positive signs of improvement in recent months, such as booming construction work and falling fuel prices, but these figures confirm that we’re heading in the right direction.

"It's important that businesses do not become complacent"

However, in order to further stabilise the economy it’s important that businesses do not become complacent. Since the financial crisis began, all industrial sectors have been forced to make their processes more energy-efficient and to reduce running costs. Now that things are on the up, it’s just as important to maintain good practices if we’re to avoid a repeat of those difficult years.
