EGS’s 2020 GlobalVue™ Report Reveals Significant Ranking Changes of 41 Different Countries

IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Edwards Global Services, Inc. (EGS), a leader in global business expansion and franchising, has released its 2020 end-of-year GlobalVue™ report, which ranks the best countries to do business in. Since 2001, this report has provided growing brands with the analytics and resources to make educated global expansion plans. The 2020 GlobalVue™ analyzes and ranks 41 different countries across 10 different business parameters—taking into consideration a multitude of factors, including:

  • Projected 2021 gross domestic product (GDP) growth
  • Market size
  • Legal concerns for international brands
  • Ease of international brand entry
  • Ease of starting a new business
  • Corruption index
  • Political situation
  • Economic factors
  • Investment risk level
  • Plus, new to this year’s GlobalVue™ reports, is the “projected coronavirus recovery” ranking

New Zealand and Taiwan tied for first place as the best countries to conduct business and expand into in 2021. Other top-ranking countries include Ireland, Canada and Singapore, with the lowest-rated countries being Russia, Argentina and South Africa, due to their expected limited 2021 GDP growth, projected coronavirus recovery and other economic factors.

“Despite the challenges of battling a global pandemic and its economic impacts, it’s uplifting to see that many countries are beginning to recover from the COVID-19 crisis,” said William Edwards, CEO of EGS. “After conducting a deep analysis of the current global market, over half of the countries in our GlobalVue™ chart are projected to see solid GDP growth in 2021.”

The EGS GlobalVue™ country ranking analysis is released twice a year and is based on recent political activities in countries, feedback from in-country EGS GlobalTeam™ members with boots on the ground in over 30 countries and continuous review of over 25 international information sources. With this insider information, the GlobalVue™ report is one of the most reliable and accurate international market evaluation reports.
