For the third consecutive year, Vietnam has been selected as the number one investment destination, beyond the BRICs.

The top three markets for investors in the next two years are China (20 percent), Vietnam (19 percent), and India (18 percent).

The UK Business Secretary, Vince Cable, said, "The balance of global economic power is shifting towards emerging markets and this is recognized in UK Trade and Investment's report.”

The UKTI report is based on a survey of more than 520 global executives from every sector. All respondents are already doing business in emerging markets or plan to do so in the next two years.
