Emerging markets

The rapidly growing Emerging Markets are becoming critical players in global politics and economies.  With organic growth, a huge unexploited potential and accelerated consumer demand, these markets attract businesses around the world to supply industrial equipment, consumer products, internationally tradable business and financial services in order to meet their growing demands.  Specifically, the five biggest emerging markets are: China, India, Brazil, Mexico and Russia. Turkey, Egypt, Peru, Colombia, Argentina and Chile are the emerging markets moving up the quickest.

Research by CBE forecasts that emerging economies will grow by 6 percent in 2010, accelerating to 6.3 percent in 2011. By contrast, mature economies are forecast to grow only by 2.1 per cent in 2010 and by 2.4 per cent the following year. The importance of emerging economies to the world trade has been steadily increasing over recent years, the annual growth rate of exports and imports from and to mature economies averaged around 5 percent, compared with over 7.5 percent in emerging and developing economies.

Despite the large growth and high expectancy, there will be increasing issues and high concerns for cultural changes, poor corporate governance, in-transparency policies, shortage of skilled workforce, energy, and volatile economic environments. These are the high challenges not only for governments but also for sustainable growth of private organizations.
