Fastest Growing Countries

Now that 2011 is all wrapped up and we are full swing into 2012, we can accurately look at things that happened in 2011 and event start to compare them to 2012. That got me wondering what the fastest growing economies in the world currently are. I did some research and found an article by Business Insider. What really surprised me was how not a single North American country was on the list. Here are the countries broken down in order:


  1. Zambia
  2. Qatar
  3. Lebanon
  4. Jordan
  5. China
  6. Argentina
  7. Estonia
  8. Turkey
  9. Sri Lanka
  10. India
  11. Nigeria
  12. Egypt
  13. Kazakhstan
  14. Indonesia
  15. Lithuania
Quite a large part of their expansion is due to improvements in transportation systems, healthcare improvements, and a larger percentage of educated individuals staying in their home countries. With all this growth requires a huge amount of construction, and these countries demand more tractors, trench shoring equipment and scaffolding systems to keep up with their growth. All of the growth is quite amazing, and it's all taking place out of view!
