Gri2010: Sharepoint List not found!

The 2010 EFIC Global Readiness index (GRi) again shows that Australian companies are actively seeking to expand their global presence. Yet where to invest is less clear.  With respondents rating four major economic regions about equal, the questions are which markets present the best balance of opportunity and risk and how to choose between them?

The answers to these questions, along with a presentation of key findings of the GRi 2010 survey, was explored by our expert speakers at a luncheon held on Thursday, 10 June.
