This issue highlights how political risk is the primary concern for multinational companies operating in the emerging countries and how the recent turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East has only aggravated these concerns. It discusses the booming chemicals industry in emerging markets and how the voracious growth in China, India, and, to some extent, in Brazil means a global realignment, and how it poses a few problems for traditional chemical producers in the US and Europe.
It provides insight into Russia's second round of privatisation, with big slices of state enterprises on the table. It also looks at the macroeconomic challenges confronting Vietnam, which, if overcome, can make it an alternative destination to China for production in southeastern Asia.
The issue also contains an interview with Rajan Bharti Mittal, one of India's most successful entrepreneurs. Mittal tells us what he thinks is right about India, what needs to be changed, and a bit about when Indian companies will invest in Western companies. Our objective with this publication is to highlight the opportunities and challenges that exist in emerging economies for global investors. The publication also outlines the following:
- The drying out of China's vast labour pool
- Managing political risk in emerging markets
- Interview with Rajan Bharti Mittal, one of India's most successful entrepreneurs
- Russia's second round of privatisation, of big slices of state enterprises.
