the uk economy was promised the strongest fall in 300 years

the uk economy will experience its worst fall in 300 years due to the coronavirus pandemic, the head of the british treasury rishi sunak promised. his speech to parliament is broadcast by the telegraph. according to the minister, by the end of 2020, the united kingdom's gdp will decrease by 11.3 percent.

recovery will begin in 2021 (+ 5.5 percent), and by 2022, gdp growth should be 6.6 percent. in general, sunak said, the economy will return to pre-crisis indicators by the end of 2022, but the consequences of the pandemic will be long-term. the minister clarified that now in 2025, gdp will be about 3 percent less than that provided for in the march draft budget.

great britain experienced the largest decline on record, with gdp falling 20.4 percent in the second quarter of this year. indicators collapsed amid restrictive measures introduced to contain the spread of coronavirus. since the beginning of the epidemic, the uk government has committed more than £ 300 billion to combat covid-19 and support business.

now the government is going to allocate another 280 billion pounds, 18 billion will go to testing, vaccinations and the purchase of personal protective equipment. another two billion will be used to support the transport system, and three will be distributed to local district administrations. most of all - 55 billion - is due to state institutions and services.
