Emerging Markets Economies
Emerging Market Economies (EMEs): Countries are generally identified as emerging markets if they show progress towards significant reform to become an integrated & advanced economy that includes allowing global access to their financial markets.
Two major forces, the rapid expansion of globalization and the retreat of communism, helped deliver increased living standards to EMEs from increased trade and capital flows.
EMEs are of interest either as destinations for portfolio investments or for foreign direct investments (FDI). As such, investors may be attracted to higher returns based on more rapid economic growth and multinational companies (MNCs) may see them as vibrant consumer markets or export platforms for production.
EMEs also interest students and policy makers to discover sources of competitive advantages, e.g., less stringent regulation, more flexible labor markets or lower tax rates.
Among emerging markets economies (EMEs) are: Argentina, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, India, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Qatar, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates & Venezuela.
