England economy 2017-2018
England has the largest economy and highly industrialized country in the United Kingdom. It is a specific producer of chemical products and textiles. Even if, locomotives, automobiles, and aircraft are among other specific industrial products of England, a significant proportion of the income of England comes from its capital City of London. Since the 1990s, the sector which is associated with financial services has been playing a greater role in the British economy and the City of London is one of the largest financial centers of the world. London city is heavily concentrated with futures exchanges, Banks, commodity and insurance companies. The official currency of England is British pound sterling and the Bank of England and the central bank of the UK is located in London.
Economic growth of UK made itself better than expected in the six months after the Brexit vote, particularly as far as consumer spending is concerned. But growth slowed in the first half of 2017 as inflation rose sharply, squeezing household spending power. In our main scenario, we project UK growth to slow from 1.8% in 2016 to around 1.5% in 2017 and 1.4% in 2018. This reflects slower consumer spending growth, offset by some rise in UK exports and public investment. But risks to growth are weighted to the downside due to Brexit. The housing market is likely to remain subdued for the next couple of years, but lack of supply and rising demand will keep property prices rising in the longer term.
The Bank of England is the main bank of England UK, which is responsible of all monitory measures of UK, will keep interest rates on hold for the shorter period of time, but the interest rates can also get higher in the coming part of the year or most probably in 2018 if growth and inflation evolve broadly as we think it will be.

UK Economic Outlook July 2017
UK economic prospects
The UK economy grew by 2% in the year to Q1 2017, but the quarterly rate fell to 0.2%, primarily as a result of a softening in consumer expenditure and the services sector. In our main scenario, we forecast UK growth to slow to 1.5% in 2017 and 1.4% in 2018. The UK would maintain a strategic distance from retreat in this situation, in spite of the fact that dangers to development are as yet weighted to some degree to the drawback given the vulnerabilities related with Brexit. A key factor behind the overall slowdown is a moderation in consumer spending growth to around 2% in 2017 and 1.5% in 2018. This reflects a squeeze on household spending power from higher inflation and sluggish wage growth. Wage growth continues to be subdued despite the lowest unemployment rate since 1975. Investment held up relatively well in the first quarter, but uncertainty surrounding Brexit may weigh on this going forward.
We anticipate that London could remain the quickest developing UK area in 2017-18, yet its pace of extension is relied upon to moderate essentially from prior fast rates. Other regions are projected to see average real growth in 2017-18 of around 1-1.5%, but we do not predict negative growth in any region in our main scenario. Consumer price inflation is likely to rise above 3% later this year, but could gradually decline later next year.
The Bank of England faces a dilemma on interest rates due to a combination of slowing growth and rising inflation. We do not expect an immediate rate rise, but a gradual increase is likely to begin at some point over the next 12-18 months in our main scenario. All in all the administration area of this economy is currently the biggest in England, with essential enterprises and assembling. The development business is the main real auxiliary industry which is powered by development of economy gave fundamentally by the money related segment, authoritative and developing administrations.

Our examination demonstrates this is ordinary of examples seen in past house value cycles. House value development has just impeded since the Brexit vote, with exchange volumes well down. We anticipate that house value development will moderate further for the time being, yet in the more drawn out term absence of supply could in any case observe property costs rise quicker than normal income.
