Although large BRICS nations Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa have accounted for much of the growth and investment in emerging markets, recent years has seen a general slowdown of the respective economies of these countries.
Instead, the non-BRIC countries of ASEAN, GCC, Sub-Saharan Africa and the large, next-tier economies of Indonesia, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Mexico and Pakistan have been the most dynamic, offsetting mixed performance in the BRICS countries that powered emerging markets growth in recent years.
This changing tide in growth economies is reflected in the 2015 Agility Emerging Markets Logistics Index, an annual data-driven ranking of 45 emerging economies accompanied by a separate survey of nearly 1,000 global logistics and supply chain executives.
The Index, ranks emerging markets based on their size, business conditions, infrastructure and other factors that make them attractive for investment by logistics companies, air cargo carriers, shipping lines, freight forwarders and distribution companies.
