Britain sees better than expected growth in 2018

Britain's economy will grow slightly more than expected this year, finance minister Philip Hammond said Tuesday, despite the nation's looming divorce from the European Union.

 

Gross domestic product is projected to grow 1.5 percent this year, Hammond said in a budget update that hiked prior guidance of 1.4 percent. However the new 2018 forecast remains a slowdown compared with growth of 1.7 percent last year.
