Where to do business? Poland scores high yet again

The most attractive emerging markets in the world for 2018 have been announced. This is an interesting indication not only for businessmen looking for potential locations, but also job-seekers interested in relocating to countries with a good business outlook.

According to MSCI Emerging Markets Index, Poland is one of the most attractive business destinations in the world. It scored number four on the list, and was overhauled only by Mexico, Turkey and the Czech Republic, the latter two also being its European rivals in this aspect.

The analysis conducted by MSCI was based on a range of indexes, including growth, yields, current-account position and asset valuations. It also focused on the competitiveness of exchange rates in comparison with US dollar and political risks.

Although the report analyses only emerging markets, it is arguable whether Poland is still one of them. A recent update by FTSE Russell in October 2017 classified the Warsaw Stock Exchange as a developed one. Now Poland is the first Central European country to be ranked in this way. Will the country leave other emerging sheets soon? 

See the top 10 emerging economies in 2018:

  1. Mexico
  2. Turkey
  3. Czech
  4. Poland
  5. Malaysia
  6. Korea
  7. Hungary
  8. Colombia
  9. Peru
  10. U.A.E.
