SESRIC launched the “Prospects and Challenges of OIC Member Countries: SWOT Outlook 2018” during the Seventh Session of the OIC Statistical Commission (OIC-StatCom) held in Ankara, Turkey on 2-3 May 2018.

The Prospects and Challenges of OIC Member Countries: SWOT Outlook series have been initiated by SESRIC to provide quick facts across multiple socio-economic sectors to shed light on the performances and potentials of OIC countries as a group based on the most recent available comparable data and consequently inform the readers about the possible cooperation opportunities among the OIC countries.

The Prospects and Challenges of OIC Member Countries series use the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) methodology for describing the state of OIC Member Countries from these four perspectives by comparing the OIC countries group with the world, non-OIC developing countries, and developed countries. The Strengths and Weaknesses sections reflect current capabilities and limitations of OIC Member Countries, while the Opportunities and Threats sections present the major areas that require immediate policy interventions for converting opportunities into strengths and avoiding threats before becoming weaknesses that may slow down socio-economic progress.
