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. The report was first published in 2008 but 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.
