The United Kingdom is the third largest economy in Europe. The majority of the UK’s Gross domestic product (GDP) comes from banking, insurance, and business services. After the 1992 recession, Britain’s economy enjoyed the longest period of expansion on record during which time growth outpaced most of Western Europe. Despite the global financial crisis in 2008, the UK remains to be one of the leading economies in Europe with an intensive agricultural sector that produces 60% of the food needs.
