Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

This study analyses the economic impact of bp in the United Kingdom in 2022.

bp has been based in the United Kingdom for more than 100 years. During that period, the company has provided the country with the reliable source of energy it needs to run. As one of the UK’s largest businesses, its activities have a significant footprint that reaches all nations and regions of the country.

In this report, we explore the economic impact that bp had in the United Kingdom in 2022. That includes the jobs, gross value added, and tax revenue the company was directly responsible for at its operational sites, as well as the economic activity bp stimulated along its supply chain by buying goods and services from businesses in the UK.

Our watchlist for 2024 also foregrounds major currency devaluations in Ethiopia and Egypt and a strong probability of coups d’état in Cameroon and Tunisia. We expect support for the African National Congress (ANC) to drop below 50% in South Africa's general elections, but that coalitions with smaller parties will allow the ruling party to cling to power.

APAC Key themes 2024 – A year of living cautiously

In 2024, the main influence on Asia is likely to be a global slowdown, particularly in China and the US. Moreover, governments have limited policy space to deal with these headwinds. Other negative influences, however, are set to ease further, including domestic inflation, external pressure on interest rates, and softening semiconductor prices. Overall, we expect a bumpy year as issues become more country-specific and policy responses and economic outcomes diverge.
