Opportunities for growth



• Our findings show that nearly a third of them are focusing on opportunities for growth in the countries where they already do business, with just 14% planning to explore new geographic markets. • Many are also revising the ‘portfolio’ of overseas markets where they concentrate their efforts. • Overall CEOs said the BRICS have evolved individually and are no longer a single block. • This feeling was echoed by the CEOs from the BRIC countries regarding their short term growth. • In terms of being “very confident” over the next 12 months, all decreased from last year – with the exception of the CEOs from China. • CEOs are now assessing prospects for new business in countries such as Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, Thailand and Vietnam. • Meanwhile, the U.S., the U.K. and Germany were also listed highly as investment destinations, as the developed economies really begin to finally show signs of recovery.
