Recognizing and investing in high-growth opportunities
In June 2012, Deloitte announced a commitment of US$750 million in investment in key strategic markets through 2015, a continuation of an earlier investment program that totaled US$500 million. The goal of the priority markets program is to increase the scope and scale of Deloitte's capabilities in selected markets and enable member firms to serve clients more effectively and respond to market opportunities.
The program is a critical part of Deloitte's global strategy to enhance the network's ability to seamlessly deliver world-class services across borders, and underscores Deloitte's commitment to invest in and develop the capabilities needed to best serve member firm clients anywhere in the world
The program's investments focus on 11 markets: Africa, Brazil, China, Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Turkey.
"After a period of greater than expected softness, output growth is now beginning to pick up slowly in the major market economies.… [In China], growth is expected to stabilize at just below 9% by 2014 … and in India, annual GDP growth is expected to strengthen gradually, to around 6% in 2013 and 7% in 2014."OECD Economic Outlook 2012, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
