The rise of emerging market multinationals: this is how they can become global industry leaders

Traffic lights are seen at the Pudong financial district in Shanghai August 11, 2014. China's fiscal expenditure grew 9.6 percent in July from a year earlier to 1.03 trillion yuan (99.7 billion pounds), the finance ministry said on Monday, indicating the government is slowing budget spending as the economy shows signs of stabilising. The spending growth cooled from a rise of 26.1 percent in June.  REUTERS/Carlos Barria  (CHINA - Tags: BUSINESS) - RTR41ZWK
