The Grant Thornton Global Dynamism Index indicates that India is the fifth best country in the world for dynamic growing businesses. According to the index, India sits ahead of Indonesia, Nigeria, Turkey, Singapore, Colombia, Russia and only trails Argentina, China., Uruguay and Chile. “The ratings go well beyond basic GDP data,” said Vishesh Chandiok, national managing partner, Grant Thornton India LLP.
“Five areas were identified as holding the key drivers to an economy’s dynamism – business operating environment, science and technology, labour and human capital, economics and growth and the financing environment. Within these groups, there were 22 key data points that were analyzed,” Chandiok added.
Grant Thornton International CEO Ed Nusbaum feels by considering key fundamentals such as the legal and political risks associated with operating in a given economy, the index gives a much truer reflection of how suitable an environment it offers for dynamic businesses.
In fact, more than 400 senior executives from a broad range of countries and industries were interviewed to determine which aspects of these attributes they deemed most important for business growth.
This allowed for the weighting of each aspect according to its perceived relevance. Rather than provide a measure of an economy’s success during a period of high economic turbulence, this iteration provides a true illustration of the strength of each economy as a place for dynamic businesses to flourish.
