The International Monetary Fund predicts emerging economies will expand by 5.4 per cent this year and 5.9 per cent next year.

While this certainly marks a significant downgrade from previous forecasts, it still outpaces the average GDP growth of 1.2 per cent and 1.9 per cent expected this year and next year in advanced economies.

Citi research shows that while China and India are likely to grow rapidly over the next 40 years, there are other key countries with promising chances for growth.
