Emerging Markets hold the key to the development of the global logistics industry over the next twenty years. Whilst developed economies struggle to come to terms with huge levels of debt, newly industrialized markets are showing strong growth prospects as manufacturers and investors look at low cost production locations. This, in turn, has led to urbanization and the development of more affluent middle classes in regions such as Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia Pacific. In this unique new book, John Manners-Bell will include a section on the key trends affecting development of emerging markets; the social, economic and political context; the reasons behind their integration within the global trading economy; the main challenges (security, corruption, transport infrastructure). There are individual sections on the BRIC transport and logistics sectors, as well as prospects for Asia, Latin America, Africa, Central Asia, Middle East (impact of the Arab Spring, Syria) and much more. A survey section showing the best markets to invest in is also included to download.
