Edwards Global Services Releases Second 2021 GlobalVue™ Report Highlighting the Best Countries to Do Business In

Report Reveals Changes in Country Rankings, Largely Due to Coronavirus Recovery

IRVINE, Calif.--()--Edwards Global Services, Inc. (EGS), a leader in global business expansion, market research, operations and development, released its second GlobalVue™ report of 2021, which charts and determines the best countries to conduct business in. For two decades, the GlobalVue™ report has equipped developing brands with the resources and analytics necessary to make educated decisions when it comes to global business expansion, ranking 44 countries and territories based on 12 business, economic and political factors. Country rankings are determined by the following:

  • Corruption index
  • Ease of international brand entry
  • Ease of starting a new business
  • Economic stability
  • Legal concerns for international brands
  • Long term investment risk level
  • Market size (customers)
  • Overall country rating
  • Overall ease of doing business
  • Political stability
  • Projected 2021 GDP growth
  • Projected coronavirus recovery

This quarter’s report shows higher rankings for Canada, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates and a lower position for India, Japan and the Philippines. The main factor in ratings was COVID-19 response, with a key indicator being the percentage of the population that is vaccinated.

“We’re seeing GDP growth of higher than 5% for many countries as they comeback from the crippling effects of the pandemic,” said William Edwards, CEO of EGS. “These numbers reflect promising coronavirus recovery and vaccination progress, an improved business climate and a positive economic outlook as we continue to bounce back from a devastating year.”

The EGS GlobalVue™ country ranking analysis is released four times a year and is based on recent economic and political activities in countries, feedback from in-country EGS GlobalTeam™ members with boots on the ground in over 40 countries and the continuous review of over 30 international information sources. With this insider information, the GlobalVue™ report is one of the most reliable and accurate international market evaluation reports.
