Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannWhile the US, Europe and Japan are in the doldrums, to put it mildly, many developing economies are growing rapidly. However with growth, comes challenges in finding talent.

But what about other fast-growing economies of the developing world? In the last 10 years or so, more than 30 markets grew annually at more than 5 percent. Angola, Kazakhstan, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Uganda, Rwanda, Vietnam, Sudan, Tanzania, Jordan, Panama, Uzbekistan, Nigeria and Peru all grew annually by 6 percent or faster. Click here to read more
