Business activity soars to four-year high across manufacturing and service


(c) Business for Scotland

From Insider today:

‘Private sector business activity in Scotland in the second quarter rose at its quickest rate since August 2014, according to the Royal Bank of Scotland’s PMI Index. The inflows of new work rising at the fastest pace in almost four years prompted firms to hike employment markedly. The figures also show that growth across both the manufacturing and service sectors continued.’

And, this is not unusual news. See these recent examples of more good news on the Scottish economy than a national broadcaster could be expected to digest:
