Economics Forecast

On an annual basis, in October, GAMBICA members receive a presentation and full report on the growth prospects in a number of our major markets, to assist with forward planning and budgets. This is carried out by Oxford Economics, one of the world's foremost global forecasting and research consultancies.

Industry sector growth forecasts are based on an outlook for investment in chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food and drink, automotive, paper, rubber and plastics, extraction, utilities and construction. The report provides an indication for opportunities in the sector as well as government investment forecasts.

The presentation also includes a macro economic overview for the UK and world economic forecasts for the US, Japan, Europe and emerging markets.

There is also the opportunity for members to participate in a 6 monthly update to the forecast in April.
