    Abstract

    The Scottish economy returned to growth in Q2 2016 and growth is expected to have been sustained through the year. But annual growth in the twelve months to June of just 0.7% (vs. 2.2% for the UK) remains disappointing. Economic prospects remain highly uncertain as the UK prepares to negotiate to leave the EU.
