The “Country Insights” section provides basic country data for 196 countries and a collection of country-specific international business links. The “Global Resources” section is a directory of international business resources with brief descriptive annotations by Global EDGE staff.  One special feature is the Market Potential Indicators study, published annually, which offers information about emerging markets in the global economy. A rich resource, the site also provides “extensive information about global and country-specific trade laws” and serves as a “portal to foreign stock exchanges, standards and conversion information, and much more,” as noted by the Internet Scout.
