Company bosses from around the world have ranked the UK as the fourth most important country for their businesses’ growth, according to a PwC survey.
Despite Brexit uncertainty global CEOs have placed the UK behind just the US, China, and Germany in terms of growth potential.
For UK CEOs, the US remains the top overseas market, followed by Germany and China: a reminder that CEOs see opportunity beyond Europe, according to the accountancy giant.
The global economy is projected by the International Monetary Fund to grow by 3.7 percent this year, the strongest expansion in seven years.
Meanwhile, the number of UK CEOs expecting the global economy to improve over the coming year has more than doubled, with 36 percent of UK business bosses expecting global economic growth to improve this year, compared to 17 percent in 2016.
