The economic links among emerging markets are becoming stronger and increasingly important. Particularly in the wake of the global financial crisis that has led to slower growth in the developed world and a seemingly permanent reduction in demand from those economies, intra-emerging market trade and investment have taken on a new importance for driving global growth. China is leading the charge by funding infrastructure projects throughout Africa, offering the bulk of commodity demand for Latin America, and increasingly selling goods to its Asian neighbors. However, China is not the only player in this game. Rather, emerging market leaders are increasingly seeing their interests aligned, as evidenced by the progress toward a new BRICS development bank that will seek to co-fund infrastructure projects within the group of fast-growing emerging economies.

For businesses operating in a global environment, understanding the links between these emerging players is vital. As EM countries seek to establish their own global brands that compete with today’s international leading players, understanding the evolving relationships within the world economy will be key to maintaining an edge in formulating a successful global strategy. The upcoming edition of The Conference Board’s Emerging Market Economics Watch Webcast will focus on these growing relationships among emerging economies, with a particular focus on the largest countries that are driving the charge.
