With a high growth rate and still significant untapped potential, emerging markets are the growth engines of the world economy. The term ‘emerging market’ was originally coined by IFC to describe a fairly narrow list of middle-to-higher income economies among the developing countries, with stock markets in which foreigners could buy securities. The term’s meaning has since been expanded to include more or less all developing countries. How to face the changing realities of globalisation requires substantial strategic thought, guidance and implementation. Contributions are invited on various aspects of globalisation and emerging markets.
