Nowcasting Scotland, Fraser of Allander Institute, 6 June:
- Our nowcast for GVA growth in 2017 Q1 is 0.22% which, at an annual rate, is 0.87%
- Our nowcast for GVA growth in 2017 Q2 is 0.23% which, at an annual rate, is 0.94%
These results represent a downward revision relative to last month’s update [link]. In the context of weak economic performance over recent quarters, this suggests that there is little reason to be optimistic about the short-term performance of the Scottish economy.
