As India edges up, Kuwait falls
Hovering just above the bottom five in 2015, Kuwait drops into their ranks this year, while India climbs to slightly higher ground. The remaining countries in this group—Philippines, Indonesia, Ukraine and Argentina—hold the same positions that they did in 2015. The key question for 2017 will be: Is India on a real upswing or is it just a blip in the data? In each of the past two years, India rose a rung or two, but it suffered a significant plunge of five spots from 2013 to 2014. Next year’s Scorecard could indicate whether India is really on an upswing.
