Открыть страницу: на русском языке

The of shift of economic power to emerging markets is stepping up. 59% of CEOs that we surveyed for PwC 15th Annual Global CEO Survey said that emerging markets would be more important than developed markets to their company's future.

At the global level, consumer goods companies and retailers are retooling their organizations to better reflect the fact that future growth is likely to be grounded in emerging markets. Those companies are ensuring that product offerings in emerging markets are tailored specifically for consumers' lives, needs, and pocketbooks; reassessing techniques for market analysis so that thay can better  assess local consumer behavior; and structuring their in-country operating models to factor in not only market opportunities but also local laws, local regulations, and potential tax benefits.

As Kazakhstan continues to enjoy economic growth and further economic diversification with essential focus on the Retail & Consumers goods ("R&C") industry, our key Clients have ambitious future plans related to exploring these opportunities . Still, balancing costs, risks and opportunities is remaining essential.
