here is one way:

In[1]:= {f,g}[a,b,c]/.(funs:{__})[args__]:>Map[Through[funs[#]]& ,{args}]

Out[1]= {{f[a],g[a]},{f[b],g[b]},{f[c],g[c]}}

But if I were you, I wouldn't bother - just remove the <&> signs for each
individual term in the list, and put one after the entire list:

{CountryData[#, "GDP"] , CountryData[#, "Population"] }& /@
