Euromonitor International is pleased to launch Economy, Finance and Trade Country Reports for 2018, starting with the USA, China and Singapore. The reports include a SWOT analysis and explore the economic landscape of each country, including the economic structure, trade profile, investment environment and an overview of government finances, as well as any risks and vulnerabilities on the horizon. For example, as the world’s largest economy and consumer market, the USA continues to display its strength and appeal to investors. Indeed, foreign investment inflows are the highest globally. However, public debt stood at 108% of GDP in 2017. Under President Trump’s higher infrastructure spending, public debt could increase further and is unsustainable. In China, with a ‘Mineral Products’ import bill of US$291 billion, the country is a net energy importer and highly dependent on external sources for its energy needs. This makes China vulnerable to global energy price fluctuations.
New to this year’s reports are a macro scenario analysis for the major economies, taken from Euromonitor’s Macro Model, to highlight the impact on the economy in the event of a growth slowdown or acceleration. Report coverage will be expanded with an extra 18 countries to bring the number of core countries we cover to 103.
