A survey conducted by the Confederation of British Industry, pointed to an increase in the number of manufacturing orders in the UK in February. The indicator was plus 6 points, rising from January value to minus 1 point. The forecast of economists suggested an increase in orders to minus 3 points. Survey participants expect stable output even after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Thus, the picture in the manufacturing sector of the UK, despite the fact that there are fewer and fewer days left before Brexit, is quite positive. In February, there is also an acceleration in the growth of export orders, contrary to forecasts.
