Britain's economy grew at its fastest pace in 2013 in six years, according to a report released ahead of Tuesday's official GDP (gross domestic product) numbers.
The Confederation of British Industry (CBI), a business lobbying group, forecast the U.K. economy grew by close to 2 percent last year, with improving credit conditions and the better global economy feeding through to rising consumer spending and business confidence.
"A picture is unfolding of a real upsurge in output across much of the U.K. economy," Katja Hall, CBI chief policy director, said in a news release.
"Many firms in many sectors are feeling brighter about their prospects than they have for a long time, showing the recovery is gaining traction.
"We certainly need companies investing more and creating a bigger footprint in fast-growing markets, and while some risks remain, we expect the economy to continue to strengthen through 2014," she added.
The CBI's monthly Growth Indicator showed the U.K. economy continued to build momentum towards the end of 2013, with output volumes growing by 30 percent in the three months to January. This is the fastest rate since September 2007.
Companies also expect robust output growth in the first quarter of 2014, the CBI said.
Its forecast follows a string of upbeat reports on the country's economy.
