The article reports the findings of an independent survey in which India and China were rated the most attractive emerging markets for British businesses. In this survey, business enterprises in Great Britain were keen on low-cost manufacturing and sales opportunities in growing markets, but sought detailed risk assessment. Two-thirds of respondents were already operating in China, citing its benefits as cheap labour and a strong work ethic. India, on the other hand, has a skilled, English-speaking and cost-effective labour force, with its weaknesses being its poor infrastructure and protected market.
