Excerpt
Excerpt: There are several people without whose help the creation of the 2004 edition of the CountryWatch Reviews could not have been accomplished. Robert Kelly, the Founder, Chairman and CEO of CountryWatch envisioned the original idea of the CountryWatch review as a concise and meaningful source of country-specific information. The country reviews would not exist without the research and writing by the editorial team at CountryWatch, who are responsible for hundreds of thousands of pages of current information on the 192 recognized countries of the world. This Herculean task could not have been accomplished without the unique talents the assistant managing editor, Mary Ann Azevedo. Robert Baldwin also deserves recognition and profound thanks for his intelligent and always excellent contributions to the economic content. Special thanks are also offered to Anne Marie Surnson who manages the news wires and contributes to the research efforts. Improvements to the CountryWatch reviews would not be possible without the insights offered by the sales and customer service department at CountryWatch who are in close contact with readers and users of CountryWatch services. A word of gratitude is, thus, due to Vicki Sanditen, Alisha Ansel, Grant Panchacharam, and Marilyn Camp. Finally, the production of the CountryWatch reviews would not be possible without the assistance of our Information Technology department. As such, we are truly indebted to Cesar Rosa and Saachi Roye.
