New Business Environment 2014 Reports: Helping Your Global Business Strategy

Euromonitor’s business environment reports present key information about the most important aspects of doing business that companies need to plan their future business strategies. This includes the ease or difficulty of business procedures, infrastructure, issues with corruption and political stability, uptake and availability of technology, tax rates, the skills and quality of the labour force and many other aspects of doing business. With the rapidly changing face of the global business landscape, many emerging markets are making quick progress in increasing their attractiveness to investors, while some developed markets are failing to keep pace. The business environment reports will help you keep pace with these changes.

Euromonitor is pleased to announce the 2014 relaunch of the business environment briefings. There are 85 business environment reports published annually.

A typical report:

  • Total expenditure on research and development (R&D) amounted to RMB1.2 trillion (US$186 billion) in 2013 and increased by 118% in real terms in the 2008-2013 period, indicative of China’s drive to nurture business investment to new high-technology industries;
  • Tunisia is business friendly in terms of its taxes compared to other countries in North Africa. It takes 8.0 payments and 144 hours each year to pay taxes in Tunisia, according to Doing Business 2014. This is less cumbersome than even the OECD average where it would take 12.0 payments and 175 hours each year;
  • Finland’s high mobile phone penetration and Internet usage helped the country top the Networked Readiness Index in 2013 (out of 144 economies), improving from 3rd position out of 142 countries in NRI 2012 rankings.

The reports contain more visual information than ever, bringing data to life and making it easy to find what you are looking for.
