Economic Reports

The economic reports provide a snapshot of the state of the economy based on analysis of key economic indicators that are relevant to the mandate of the DTI (i.e., to enable businesses, empower consumers, and generate jobs). These reports also highlight emerging issues and government policy responses and initiatives.

The economic reports on the gross domestic product (GDP) and balance of payments (BOP) are prepared quarterly while economic reports on foreign direct investments (FDI), trade, inflation, labor and employment, and the Information Handling Services (IHS) Markit Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) are prepared monthly.
