Economic Forecasts Emerging evidence suggests that many economies will return to growth in the second half of 2009, as conditions in the global economy continue to improve The UK economy is expected to follow a broadly similar pattern, contracting by around 4% in 2009, and growing very modestly in 2010 by less than 1%. Emerging economies are expected to drive the global recovery Considerable uncertainty remains over both the timing & scale of the recovery Future Prospects – Scottish Economy Business surveys suggest the rate of decline in Scottish output eased in Q2 2009 & there are signs that weak growth may return in the 2nd half of 2009 Employment is expected to continue to decline throughout 2009 and into 2010 and this will be reflected in further significant increases in unemployment Forecasters predict Scottish output to decline sharply in 2009 by between 2.9% and 4.1%, with only very modest growth indeed expected in 2010.
