The Scottish economy suffered a contraction in the fourth quarter 1999, in GDP as a whole and in the main service and manufacturing sectors. The UK economy, in contrast, displayed positive growth with both services and manufacturing outperforming their Scottish counterparts. But for 1999 as a whole, the Scottish economy grew more strongly than the UK reflecting stronger growth in the manufacturing and construction sectors. These are the
principal conclusions of the latest quarterly GDP data from the Scottish Executive.
