WASHINGTON, Dec. 11, 2013 – The Bisignis Institute published its new Emerging Market Energy Security Growth Prosperity Index® this week on its website. The index is intended to give policymakers and researchers a guide when studying emerging countries that the Bisignis Institute believes have very good near- and long-term growth potential due to strong current GDP growth and large oil reserves. 

Emerging Market Energy Security Growth Prosperity Index®

The top five countries in the index are Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Brazil, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan. Following is Russia, Turkey, Georgia, Romania and Kyrgyzstan.

The full list is published at bisignis.org/indexes.

How countries are ranked

Each country is ranked using a calculation of government corruption, GDP growth and oil reserves. Corruption data was extracted from Transparency International, a reputable international group that ranks government corruption. The index features 24 countries from South America, Europe and Asia.
