As the global economy continues to slow, countries and corporations are under pressure to operate even more efficiently to compensate for slowing revenue with higher productivity and lower cost. To date, many large, dynamic emerging economies have escaped this challenge, as they relied on relatively easy productivity gains afforded by resurgent growth – by moving toward international best practices, relying on technology transfers from the developed world and investing heavily to update poor quality infrastructure. The discussion during this webcast focuses on the advantages and constraints experienced by the major emerging markets with regard to competitiveness.
