There is good news for George Osborne as he approaches his latest budget speech.

The Bank of England is predicting the economy will grow by 3.4% per cent this year and the Office of Budget Responsibility is expected to raise its growth forecast from 2.4% to just under 3% as well. Several recent surveys also show that UK manufacturers are enjoying strong growth both across the country and in export orders, with overall confidence in the manufacturing sector growing.

Professor Abhinay Muthoo and Siobhan Benita comment on the approaching budget speech. For more information visit: The Conversation
