Investment in big emerging markets is surging, with India, China and Indonesia surpassing the US as recipients of greenfield foreign direct investment in the first half of this year, according to the Financial Times. This comes as the economic picture brightens somewhat for emerging markets after a period of volatility. The top 10 destinations globally for greenfield investment for January-July 2016 include eight emerging markets. The three aforementioned countries rank first, second and third, with the US trailing in fourth place. Investment into emerging markets as a whole is up year-on-year, with $314.9 billion of greenfield investment flowing in during the first half of this year compared with $283.8 billion this time last year.
