Overview

These economic surveys of foreign countries published under the aegis of the Board of Trade have a virtue rare in government publications - they are concise and to the point. Written by the Commercial Secretary in the British Embassy or Consulate in the country in question, each report provides a narrative account of the country's economic, financial and trading situation backed by tables of detailed statistics.

The statistical information is of particular interest since much of it came from local government sources and was not necessarily published elsewhere.
