Investors are pouring into the UK, says CBI

The CBI has said that strong growth and a competitive tax system have turned Britain into a 'magnet for investment'. In its annual employment trends survey, out this week, the business organisation will report that the UK's attractiveness as an investment hub has turned around in the past 12 months, with 46% of companies believing Britain will be a more attractive place to invest in 2015, compared with 24% that consider the country less alluring. The survey will also show that companies expect employment to continue to grow at a robust pace, led by the private sector. Stronger pay growth is expected too.
