Oxford Business Group (OBG), the global publishing, research and consultancy firm, has given its coverage of emerging economies around the globe a major boost with the launch of a new website. The revamped website contains thousands of articles and business updates giving insightful analysis of key economic activity and developments in almost 30 countries across the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. Elizabeth Boissevain, OBG’s Director of Field Operations, explained that the Group’s rapid expansion over the past five years had heightened the need to ensure the company’s website kept pace with its printed reports, which have become a valuable point of reference among the global business community. “We are aware that key players and decision-makers on the international business stage find the comprehensive and detailed analysis and data in our reports and economic updates invaluable,” she said. “As we continue to raise the bar with our coverage of emerging economies, we are confident that our new website will quickly prove to be a highly useful resource for investors, analysts, researchers, academia and anyone interested in doing business in the 27 countries we cover.” Stephanie Parker, Director of Circulation and Communications, said that OBG’s new website had not only taken the presentation of content to a new level, but was also designed to be as user-friendly and accessible as possible. “These are exciting times for Oxford Business Group and we wanted a modern and dynamic website that would reflect our continued success and provide users with the high standard of information and service they have come to expect from us in the best format possible,” she said. “I believe our online service will bring a new dimension to the Group’s reports and am confident that it will be positively received by our valued clients.” OBG’s new website features approximately 22,000 original articles exploring political, economic and sectoral trends across the countries featured. It contains a fully digitised archive of OBG’s reports, dating back to 2004, which is available for reading online or by subscription download. Reports from 2004 to 2007 and the ‘Country Profile’ and ‘Guide’ chapters for all available reports are free. Registered users will receive regular special offers on content, while free economic updates will be available to users who sign up for them. Existing subscribers will be moved seamlessly to the new system, which can be found at: www.oxfordbusinessgroup.com .
