Up to £850 million-worth of pension benefits currently go unclaimed by retired expats.

Next, this positive movement will extend to interior designers and furniture stores. All those hard-working and expat businesses are finally being rewarded for their perseverance and patience during the financial crisis. All are finally feeling that the economy is picking up.
