    Abstract

    This brief article provides an overview of the economic outlook based on the latest economic data. The recession has officially ended with a second quarter rise in non-oil Gross Domestic Product of 0.1%, the first quarterly rise since 1990 Q3. Subsequent events in the ERM will provide a boost to the real economy but recent unemployment figures suggest that any significant upturn will be delayed until 1993.
