Emerging economies present both tremendous opportunities and challenges. This webinar is designed to shed light on recent developments in measuring the institutional challenges and political risks foreign players face when attempting to penetrate these markets. Armed with these tools, we can better understand both the megatrends that are affecting macroeconomic development across the emerging world as well as the decision-level challenges that every multinational firm must necessarily face as it strives to achieve its global strategic objectives.
