New app provides economic data for Kenya, Angola, Liberia, and Mali


Thomson Reuters has launched a dedicated Decision Africa app that provides financial professionals with comprehensive market and data leading up to and after the elections in Kenya (8th August), Angola (23rd August), Liberia (10th October), and Mali (29th October).

Sneha Shah (pictured), MD Africa, Thomson Reuters, said:

"The pace of political and economic change has been accelerating across the continent in the past few years. Africa is a rapidly growing destination for foreign direct investment, and with the diversity of markets and political and economic environments, investors are asking us for more ways to get unbiased, real-time access to the most comprehensive portfolio of news and data relevant to help them make critical decisions."

The app features a chart book page of all four countries with information on health and primary education, infrastructure, macro environment, technological readiness and labour market efficiency. It offers clients an easily accessible desktop view of events across the Sub-Saharan Africa political and economic landscape, and a one-stop location for market data, news, commentary, and analysis. In addition, the app provides continuous Reuters news and commentary, as well as key economic snapshots of the four countries and Sub Saharan Africa Markets.

The app runs on Thomson Reuters' flagship desktop product, Eikon, a powerful and intuitive next-generation open platform solution for consuming real-time and historical data.
