UK economic growth remained robust in 2016 – driven by expanding domestic demand and employment – but is expected to be weaker in 2017 and 2018. This is one of the conclusions in the European Commission's annual assessment of the UK, in turn part of the annual analysis of the economic and social situation in the member states. It follows the economic forecast – an analysis of indicators such as gross domestic product (GDP), inflation, employment and public finances – released last week.
New rules to help prevent tax avoidance via non-EU countries were agreed at today's Economic and Financial Affairs Council. The Commission welcomes this agreement which will prohibit multinational companies from escaping corporate tax by exploiting differences between the tax systems of member states and those of non-EU countries (so-called 'hybrid mismatches').

The title of this exhibition comes from a passage of William Shakespeare’s Anthony and Cleopatra (act 1, scene 5): “My salad days, when I was green in judgment, cold in blood….” The idiomatic expression refers to youth as a time of inexperience accompanied by enthusiasm and idealism, and in this exhibition it recalls by extension the archetype of Senex and Puer, as developed by the psychologist James Hillman.
