Inflation rates in the UK are still running wild and have halted economic growth in Q3 2023. The country had a flatlined GDP in the quarter per initial figures revealed on Nov. 10.
UK GDP flatlines in Q3 2023
There was no quarterly growth in the past three months ending September in the UK despite Q2 showing a slight increase of 0.2%. While inflation rates remain higher in the country, it’s still not as tight as it was in the previous year.
The UK Q3 GDP is 0.6% higher than what was recorded in 2022, but there is still more to be done for the economy to experience a near-full recovery. The Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt said that inflation remains the “single greatest barrier to economic growth” in the country, with the Consumer Price Index showing 6.7% YoY in September.
“The best way to sustainably grow our economy right now is to stick to our plan and knock inflation on its head.”
He added that their Autumn Statement would focus on how they can get the economy growing healthily again by unlocking investments and getting people to work by reforming public services to allow them to deliver the growth that the country needs.
