About the Event: Join us for the launch of an exciting new tool to our Atlas of Economic Complexity: Country Profiles. 

The Country Profiles are a new, interactive journey through a country's economic structure and growth patterns, which reveals the strategy necessary to achieve greater prosperity. This first-of-its-kind platform revolutionizes how to think about economic strategy, policy, and investment opportunities for more than 130 countries. 

Each Country Profile offers a step-by-step explanation of a country’s economic complexity – past, present, and future. Across 10 unique data visualizations, this story-telling tool is both descriptive and predictive, with analysis and insights that are entirely data-driven.

The event will feature the research and technology behind the tool, as well as an exclusive demonstration from our Atlas team.
