New countries added to Global Economic Monitor: State of Palestine (West Bank and Gaza) and Uzbekistan

The GEM Task Force, part of the CEIC Database team, is pleased to announce the addition of two new countries – State of Palestine (West Bank and Gaza) and Uzbekistan – to the Global Economic Monitor (GEM) indicators in World Trend Plus, under the Economic Monitor topic.

The expansion includes economic indicators, closely monitored by our clients, for these two countries.
