Increased Risks from Global Political Upheavel
The research conducted by GA Business and Management Consultancy, measured the political risk in 211 countries and territories based on the level of risks such as currency inconvertibility and exchange transfer, strikes, riots, and civil commotion, war, civil war, sovereign non-payment, political interference, supply chain disruption and legal and regulatory risk.
The annual research has seen a nearly 30% increase in the number of countries in the middle of risk rankings-the medium high categories-as this countries have become more active in the world economy and their prosperity has increased. In addition, in recent research, GABMC pointed to continued tension between sovereign risks in the euro zone in the emerging countries. In 2012, the key issue for country risk will be private debt monitoring and growth financing.
GABMC found that the winners of the financial crisis are the emerging countries, which will continue their solid growth trajectory in 2012 with a slight slowdown: 6.4% compared to 6.2% in 2011.
