Which countries are best placed to prosper in the coming decades? The factors influencing a nation’s potential are many and varied. How strong are business rights? Are local businesses exposed to best practice from abroad? What is that country’s transport system or mobile coverage like?

KPMG’S Growth Promise Indicators report analyses data from a wide-range of sources to build a global picture.

  • 180 countries
  • 20 years of data
  • Analysis of 15 categories – from levels of government debt and FDI stock, to school enrolment and the strength of intellectual property rights.

For the investor, KPMG’s GPI report will help you to make more informed decisions about your long-term location decisions.

For governments, it will shine a light on who is leading the pack and provide insight into how they are doing it.

The report – which ranks the Netherlands, Switzerland and Luxembourg as one, two, three – drills into three broad themes:

  1. Openness: Is the world a less open place to trade today? And does remaining ‘open’ pay dividends
  2. Technology. Which countries are accelerating their development through smarter investments in technology?
  3. Institutional strength and transparency: See which lower-income countries are stealing a march on their wealthier peers.
