The growth of emerging multinationals is redefining the global socio-economic landscape. Developing markets accounted for 60% of incremental world GDP between 2000 and 2010. Over the next decade, most of the world’s expected population growth of approximately 750 million people will be in these economies. Emerging multinationals can become a bridge to advanced economies, by both promoting responsible business practices and playing a positive role in their societies.
In the 2014-2016 term, the Global Agenda Council on Emerging Multinationals aims to enhance the positive role of business in developing countries by becoming the foremost platform of emerging multinational insight and best practice dissemination.
