June, 2002:  CountryWatch provides valuable information on countries around the world. We offer country reports on 192 countries that are updated at least every six months or as major events occur. These reports provide detailed economic, business, political, social and environmental information. In addition to this, we have a news wire service (more than 170,000 news articles in a twelve month archive), a detailed database, a map gallery, a photo gallery, an area designed as a social studies curriculum resource as well as strategic links to the most prominent economic, political and media resources. I am attaching a pdf document detailing CountryWatch and  the pricing structure. You can access the site at I am attaching a pdf document detailing CountryWatch.

CountryWatch recently launched a new product called the CountryWatch Forecast. The CountryWatch Forecast is a generic model encompassing 192 countries plus Hong Kong and Taiwan, that projects 35 major macro-economic variables, five years into the future. A user can change the assumptions of the model based on his/her own intuition. You can access a sample of the forecast on the Dominican Republic at Major universities and corporations like Texaco Chevron have either purchased the product or are currently reviewing it. I am attaching a pdf document detailing the CountryWatch Forecast. I am attaching a pdf document detailing the CountryWatch Forecast.
