GDP increased by 1.1% in Q2 2010

Last Friday’s news that GDP had increased by 1.1% in Q2 2010 was welcome, particularly as Construction was a key contributor to the average at a relatively high 6.6%. Within that we’ll be watching the movements in infrastructure work and, for the first time this year, the ONS will now be publishing figures for Repairs and Maintenance in infrastructure. This will help us track more accurately the skills needed within the sector. sean@mcginley.co.uk
