Early Tuesday morning in Asia, global rating agency Moody’s came out with their analysis of the UK economy.

“Sustained emigration from the  UK  (Aa3 stable) would lead to labour shortages in some sectors, weaken growth potential and intensify fiscal challenges, Moody’s Investors Service said in a report published today. Recent data suggests the UK’s foreign-born population fell steeply in 2020, with London in particular seeing the largest outflows,” said the report.

It was also mentioned that the sizeable government support measures will help to keep unemployment in check, as the economy recovers from the pandemic shock and the jobs-rich services sector slowly returns to normal.
