Your Overview of Data Additions

BDO European Export Index, Ghana central government budget, Enterprise Sector Economic Climate for Poland, and Outward Remittances for India.

BDO European Export Index

We’ve recently added European Export Indices from BDO. The BDO Export Indices are composite indicators which provide snapshots of the export markets in Europe’s five largest economies – Germany, UK, France, Italy & Spain – together accounting for around 70% of EU GDP, as well as the EU and Eurozone on the whole.

In the chart below, we compare UK Exports with the BDO UK Export Growth Index, which suggests that a slight increase of the exports’ YoY growth rate can be expected for December.
