Zojuist is de nieuwe Rabobank MKB Regio Top 40 verschenen. We zijn trots op dit kennisproduct omdat het onderstreept waarvoor de Rabobank voor staat: dichtbij, betrokken en toonaangevend.

Landenrapport

India (Country update) (Engelstalig)

Economic growth in 2011/12 slowed to 6.5% from 8%+ growth figures in the years before. This year, economic growth is expected to be 6% to 6.5%. The government is seen as all important to kick-start economic growth, but the ruling UPA is a lame duck.

Landenrapport

Ghana (Country report) (Engelstalig)

Ghana's main economic risk is the country's persisting twin deficit on the current account balance (of 9.4% in 2011) and fiscal balance (of 4% of GDP in 2011).

Landenrapport

Kenya (Country report) (Engelstalig)

The upcoming general election period may lead to political and social instability in Kenya, comparable to 2007's election unrest.

Landenrapport

Saudi Arabia (Country Report) (Engelstalig)

Saudi Arabia is a prosperous country due to an abundance of hydrocarbon resources and is estimated to grow by 5.6% in 2012. The country was hardly affected by contagion from the Arab Spring protests, due to substantial government hand-outs.

Landenrapport

Oman (Country Update) (Engelstalig)

Oman's economy will grow by 4.9% in 2012, buoyed by domestic demand and external demand for its oil and gas exports. A downside risk is the uncertain global economy, especially the eurozone peripheral debt crisis and slowing growth in China.

Economen zijn geen waarzeggers

Vorige week maakte de Amerikaanse bank Citigroup bekend dat zij de kans op een Griekse uittreding uit de eurozone op 90% schat. Ook enkele andere gerenommeerde instituten wagen zich sinds kort aan dergelijke waarzeggerij. Puur koffiedik kijken.
