• Oxford Business Groups research covers a variety of sectors

    Sectors

    OBG Reports drill down into key sectors for each economy studied. Sectors prioritised are those considered to have maximum opportunity for international investors. Our signature analysis benefits from primary, on-the-ground research augmented by exclusive interviews with key local figures and international organisations.

Sector | Agriculture

OBG investigates the key pressures and developments affecting local agriculture, particularly where a country is dependent on plantations or forestry to maintain GNP. It also highlights the output trends and technological advances in areas such as irrigation techniques and land reclamation.

Sector | Construction

OBG’s Construction sector analysis highlights investment opportunities in the infrastructure, residential, commercial and industrial segments. Government policies are reviewed along with labour, materials and land costs, trends in bank lending and the public tendering process.

Sector | Economy

OBG provides coverage of the major macro-economic trends within local economies, including GDP growth, government budgeting, public debt, balance of payments, monetary policy and long-term development strategies.

Sector | Education

OBG reports on the increasing emphasis placed by developing countries on education, in particular privatisation programmes and incentives for international private education investment. Details include number of schools and universities, enrolment and literacy rates, government expenditure and targets.

Sector | Energy

OBG’s energy analysis looks at all aspects of the industry, including exploration and production, domestic usage and exports plus relationships between the government and IOCs. Where applicable, renewable energy, electricity demand, production, power station construction and local potential for nuclear power are analysed.

Sector | Environment

OBG reports on the growing awareness of environmental concerns, how they affect industrial development and the steps being taken to address attendant problems. Many countries are establishing environmental agencies to seek out ways to cut pollution and waste, as well as to introduce conservation and recycling measures.
