Emerging Markets are Transforming
While some emerging-market countries still rely on exports, commodities and energy, many are radically changing.
They are becoming more sophisticated, companies are developing their own global brands and, in some cases, leading the world in new technologies and services. Information technology and consumer-oriented products and services from emerging markets dominate our daily lives – whether it is the technology that powers our smartphones and TVs or the sensors and cameras that help us park our cars.
