Growth of output in the Scottish economy continues to be strong. Current performance mirrors the brisk rate of economic growth in the rest of the UK. Manufacturing in Scotland now appears to be sharing in the growth which for so long has principally been enjoyed by the service sector. Construction is now the most buoyant sector in Scotland, with the effects of the recent rapid growth in house prices south of the border spreading north, and the strong growth of investment in the UK leading to increased orders for new buildings and works.
