Liz Truss said she intends to continue to stick to her economic plan for the country

British Prime Minister Liz Truss said on Sunday that she would continue her economic plan, which caused turmoil in financial markets and weakened the country’s national currency.

Truss acknowledged that the United Kingdom was facing “a very turbulent and turbulent time” but said her policies would lead to a “rapidly growing, low-tax economy” in the long run.

Truss took office less than a month ago, promising to revolutionize the British economy to end years of sluggish growth. But on Sept. 23, the government announced a stimulus package including £45 billion ($50 billion) in tax cuts to be paid for by government borrowing, sending the pound to a record low against the dollar.
