Key Quotes

“The economy has been quite resilient to the Brexit uncertainties so far, hence, we do not expect a big impact on the labour market. The question is whether this will change soon, as we see a risk that business confidence and hence growth may take a hit from Theresa May's harsh stance on Brexit. We estimate the unemployment rate (3M average) and annual growth in average weekly earnings (excluding bonuses) were unchanged at 4.9% and 2.1%, respectively.”
