Depending on whom you ask, Britain’s return to growth after the 2008 crash might has been steady and firm or painfully sluggish by historical standards. As both opinions are almost certainly tainted by political motivations, we can probably assume the truth is somewhere in between – a slower than expected return from a global crash without precedent.
It would appear that the nation is slowly uncrossing its fingers. The UK’s GDP is up 0.8% and confidence of growth is returning to the housing market. While there’s still a long way to go (not least in a reduction in the cost of living, which is being squeezed by high energy bills), we can be pretty confident that a certain buoyancy has returned to Britain.
The supply chain in the oil and gas industry is a key component in ensuring that everything runs on time and within budget.
