Economy of Iceland
Economy of Iceland has been published by the Central Bank of Iceland 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, more generally, everyone who is interested in the Icelandic economy.
We also hope that Icelandic readers will find this survey useful. It is published every other year.
This publication focuses on the structure 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. A more up-to-date analysis of recent developments is provided 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.
