Least Attractive Emerging Logistics Markets
Survey question: Which of the following countries do you believe have the LEAST potential as emerging logistics markets?(Please rank)
The ranking of emerging markets with the least potential
sees Syria, a country beset with violence and instability,
maintain its position at the head of the list, having
moved away from the pack as respondents collectively
add emphasis to the perception this year. The ongoing
insecurity across vast swathes of the country has led to
conflict of such intensity that damage has left major areas
of the country uninhabitable, let alone functional enough
to demand commercial logistics operations. Two other
countries that have suffered heavily as a result of conflict
– Libya and Iraq – join Syria at the top of the ranking
again this year, although Libya has leapfrogged Iraq
into 2nd position. Libya’s rise reflects a lack of progress
made by the various administrations empowered to bring
embattled areas of the country under the rule of law.
Overall, the Middle East & North Africa region contributes
four further countries to the list, with Iran, Egypt and
Algeria also making the top 10.
