The Icelandic economy has undergone drastic changes in recent years. At the same time information in English has sometimes been lacking which motivated the Iceland Chamber of Commerce to publish an overview of the Icelandic Economy for the first time in 2008. The report is now published annually. The report is sent to thousands of recipients in business, governmental administration and other organisations around the world, but is also freely available online.
