Competitive positioning (1)

Country Briefings is recognised as filling a valuable niche position between the comprehensive EIU country digests and D&B’s commercial trading reports.

Economist Intelligence Unit Country Reports

- Static annual economic analyses of 130 countries

  • Quarterly hardcopy or monthly e-mail updates
  • No coverage of key corporate activity
  • Expensive: Total Access annual subscription to Country Briefings on 32 countries plus the full archive for less than the cost of 3 EIU country reports
  • Hard to interrogate past editions
  • No separate “content-feed” business
  • Do have authority

slide12
Competitive Positioning (2)

D&B Country RiskLine Reports

  • Cover 131 countries but only on local trading conditions
  • Relatively expensive: monthly reports cost $75 each
  • Have authority
  • However, active partner with Country Briefings to cover the niche gap between their own reports and the EIU analyses

DIY Research

  • Apparently free and easy to do via the web
  • Most free general sources are pure “destination guides”
  • Typically delivers literally hundreds of articles with “fuzzy” relevance
  • Country Briefings aggregates only pertinent information in a concise format
  • Very ineffective use of valuable executive time

slide13
D&B Collaboration
  • Country RiskLine Reports evaluate cross-border business risks
  • Based on a country’s political, economic and commercial performance
  • Published monthly on 131 countries
  • Perfectly complemented by Country Briefings to cover niche gap to EIU
  • Available from the Country Briefings website
    • $75 for a single copy
