UK Overtakes US as World’s Top Investment Destination

EY’s annual corporate deal-making report published today has revealed that the UK has become the top investment destination in the world for the first time in the report’s 10-year history. The UK overtook the United States, which has held the top spot since 2014…

The report notes that there have been a number of high-profile investments in Britain over the past year, including Comcast’s purchase of satellite broadcaster Sky for £30 billion and Coca-Cola’s takeover of Costa Coffee for £4 billion. The UK’s performance is at odds with the global slowdown, with the IMF last week cutting its global growth forecasts…

Global vice chair at EY Steve Krouskos said that Britain remains an “open environment for foreign investors”, reinforced by the English language, a skilled workforce, and a strong technology base. None of which will change with Brexit…

Government Borrowing Lowest It Has Been In 17 Years

New ONS figures released this morning reveal that borrowing in the current financial year was £23.1bn, £18bn less than a year before. Still no sign of that Leave vote-induced debt explosion…

Helping the good news was the fact that retail sales have risen unexpectedly strongly this month, showing consumer confidence remains high despite predictions from the experts. Now the UK’s total deficit isn’t far off our gross EU contribution…

Any deficit is a bad deficit, but adding just £23.1 billion to the national debt this year is a lot better than last year when we added £41.1 billion to it, and massively improved than the £103 billion deficit the UK faced in 2010. Guido will not be satisfied until the deficit is eliminated so the national debt can start to fall in real terms…

British Universities Score Best Ever Global Ranking

British universities saw their best ever placing in the QS global university rankings this year. They took the top spot in 13 subjects, up from 10 last year. Despite Remainers warning us before the referendum that “Brexit could push British universities down global rankings”

The Times reported that experts are saying “Britain is benefiting from the rise in tuition fees in 2012” that enabled a big expansion in student numbers and facilities. Nick Hillman, the director of the Higher Education Policy Institute said that with  tuition fees under review this years results could represent the high water mark. Ditching the current fee system would do serious harm to our international rankings, and places for disadvantaged students domestically….
