Maps and charts

Emerging markets, 2018

Sources: G20,; Standard & Poor's; Morgan Stanley; FTSE Russell


The map shows that the category of countries known as “emerging” comes first and foremost from the world of finance: in this case, through the FTSE Russell and Standard & Poor’s or Morgan Stanley Bank groups of analysis and financial rating. The classification shows overlaps with political organizations (BRICS or G20). Nevertheless, these emerging countries do not present a particular geographical whole, although there are few of them in Africa; nor do they have specific individual profiles, since continent-states sit side by side with small states.
