Country Profiles outline a country's economic and political status and background. They give an annual perspective on the long-term political and social issues affecting each country, providing a complete introduction to all international markets. 173 reports on nearly 200 countries present figures and analysis in an historical context. They map out the infrastructure and the major industrial sectors of the economy; and also stand back from the process of change and evaluate longer-term developments.
Revised annually, they organise data from a diverse range of national and international sources into a compact, coherent and standard format. The statistical tables give a five-year run of data on issues such as manufacturing, fiscal policy and unemployment which, together with the text, provide a detailed insight into the structure and functioning of each country.
Country Profiles enhance your ability to make accurate forecasts, strengthen your ability to analyse the effects of infrastructure and major economic sectors on one another, and deepen your understanding of a country and its economy. Country Profiles are equally valuable as regular background briefings and as support for project work.
Country Reports cover nearly 200 countries and help you keep pace with how national, regional and global events will affect your business in the short- to medium term.|
Each report examines and explains in depth the issues shaping the countries in which you operate: the political scene, economic policy, domestic economy, sectoral trends, and foreign trade and payments. Detailed two-year forecasts complement the analysis and pinpoint political and economic developments and trends.
