Economy of Iceland 2018

The Central Bank of Iceland has published Economy of Iceland 2018 on its website. Economy of Iceland is a biennial booklet that has been issued by the Bank since 1987. It is intended mainly for an international readership. This includes international institutions that deal with Icelandic economic matters on a regular basis, rating agencies, financial institutions, foreign investors, embassies and diplomatic missions and, more generally, anyone who is interested in general information about the Icelandic economy. We also hope that Icelandic readers will find this survey useful. Economy of Iceland focuses on the structure and characteristics of the Icelandic economy. It is intended to serve as background material for understanding the evolution of the economy, but it does not provide a detailed account of recent developments. Comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of recent economic and financial developments and prospects can be found in the Central Bank’s Monetary Bulletin and Financial Stability reports. The Bank’s Annual Report also gives an overview of economic developments each year.
