Report AIECE working group on Foreign Trade

This CPB document contains the half-yearly forecasts of the AIECE Working Group on Foreign Trade, of which CPB is a long-standing member. The AIECE is the Association of European Conjuncture Institutes, involved in surveying economic development and macroeconomic forecasting.

The analysis in this report is partly based on forecasts provided by the AIECE member institutes with respect to their own country, whereas the Working Group provided forecasts for the non-European area. The trade report includes summarising tables with e.g. export market growth, calculated import prices and export prices of competitors, enabling the institutes to re-assess their own trade forecasts.
