Yael Selfin, Economics Director at KPMG comments on the latest ONS industrial production figures.
Yael Selfin said: “The latest industrial production figures confirm the rebound in output in June and put manufacturing back on growth path. However, challenges in the form of strong Sterling, prospects of rising interest rates, and continued weakness in some of the UK’s main trading partners could put further pressure on growth.”
