Looking for some reliable economic prognostication? The Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI) should be on your list of places to consult.
The northern German think-tank is the 2020 winner of the Forecast Award for Germany – an accolade handed out by FocusEconomics, a leading provider of economic analysis and forecasts headquartered in Spain.
To determine the winner, FocusEconomics analyzed forecasts submitted to their months survey over the course of 22 months.
“This award underlines our excellent scientific expertise,” said HWWI cycle analysts and researchers Jörg Hinze and Prof. Dr. Henning Vöpel in a statement. “The accuracy of our macroeconomic forecasts for the German economy is vital to politicians and the public in identifying current dynamics, seizing growth opportunities and navigating through risks.”
