Fortnightly Economic Statistics 

Data is an indispensable tool for policymakers to perform macro-economic surveillance, and for analysts or fund managers to detect headwinds facing industries or firms while spotting valuable opportunities for their clients. The amount of data, however, can sometimes be overwhelming and AFED has identified a vital set of Leading African Indicators to make it easier for you to analyze. See the Leading African Indicators brochure for more information.

In addition to this unique service, subscribers will get access to the full African Financial & Economic (AFED) database - a product of Exchange Data International (EDI), which provides economic intelligence on all 54 African economies and their financial markets. AFED aggregates data primarily from local sources into one platform and provides it in a standardized format offering target markets direct access to the data they need. The local sources are complemented with carefully selected indicators from a few international sources such as International Monetary Fund (IMF), African Development Bank (AfDB), etc. All data is updated daily.
