As Head of the Economics Team, Jumana will serve as Editor for the team’s published services, Industrial and Economic Outlook, which contains a global outlook, the Cost Macro Report, a forecast of the macroeconomic cost drivers that support CRU’s Cost Model Services, and a long term demand macro - a forecast of long-run macro economic trends which underpins our long term market outlook reports.

Saleheen stated:"Today, the key events shaping the metal, mining, and fertilizer industries are macroeconomic in nature, these include the trade war, oil price rises and the withdrawal of QE, to name a few. I am looking forward to helping clients interpret what the macro backdrop means for their business. Please get in touch if you want to find out more about our macro service, or if you have any feedback on our monthly outlook or cost report.
