Importantly, FocusEconomics is a leading provider of economic analyses and forecasts for 200 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, and price forecasts for 34 key raw commodities. Each year, the FocusEconomics awards recognize the three best economic forecasters for their precision on the future evolution of six fundamental macroeconomic indicators: GDP, fiscal balance, inflation, interest rate, exchange rate, and current account.

This recognition reflects the team's commitment to periodically providing timely forecasts that allow people to provide relevant information to their clients and end-users in the region.
