FSG recently released a series of actionable research reports on India, Mexico and Russia. These reports help inform business leaders’ decision-making for these key markets. For additional information, including table of contents and sample pages view FSG’s online store catalog here.
India Subnational Prioritization
India is drawing increased international attention as one of the most resilient economies in an uncertain global economic environment. However, given the size and complexity of the market, there are substantial economic disparities within the country.
Additionally, gradual liberalization and rapid decentralization are exacerbating already-significant regional differences. These factors make a state-level strategy acutely important for India.
With this in mind, FSG developed a three-step framework for companies to prioritize and categorize states in India based on opportunity and business fit, allowing business leaders to make more informed decisions and strengthen their India strategic plans.
Plan B for Mexico
Mexico confronts increasing uncertainty over the pace of its economic performance as the potentially dangerous ramifications of the new Trump administration’s protectionist measures compound interest rate hikes, inflation, and currency volatility.
While most companies have seen limited direct impact on their businesses beyond the effect of peso depreciation, most are continuing to develop contingency plans to mitigate severely disruptive political and trade-related risks, while evaluating the potential fallout on Mexico’s domestic politics and business environment over the next two years.
Russia 2020: Outlook & Scenarios
In the anticipated absence of structural reforms that would raise economic prospects, Russia’s economy will grow on the back of gradually rising commodity prices supported by general macroeconomic stability.
Tighter political control will remain the top priority for the Russian government, with all other considerations—including economic considerations—subservient. Thus, highly conservative economic policies focused on stability will shape the market while growth will be modest during this period because reforms are highly unlikely.
Businesses can capture additional opportunities in the next three years, but should be prepared to win through superior execution rather than by benefiting from a significant recovery in the market.
