Macro website launched

Several of the world’s leading multilateral organisations have joined together to launch a website with data on the 20 largest economies.

The website presents G20 data available at participating agencies covering the financial, governmental, external and real sectors. It also provides links to data in websites of international and national agencies.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF), which hosts the website, said in a statement that the launch is part of a multi-pronged response to the global financial crisis. The Principal Global Indicators site is intended to “help those monitoring economic and financial developments in systematically important countries”.

The Inter-Agency Group on Economic and Financial Statistics, which is chaired by the IMF, was created at the end of last year. It also represents the Bank for International Settlements, the European Central Bank, Eurostat, the IMF, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the United Nations and the World Bank.
