    Ivory Coast and Senegal, with their strategic exposure to both the Atlantic shipping lanes and the West African interior, will be in a good position to become important trading nations if and when the West African economies become more prosperous.

    I was curious to check which strategic resources Crimea has besides offshore oil and gas and onshore salt. It turns out that the Crimeans have titanium which is useful for the aerospace industry in particular.

    It sounds like for sure a number of business considerations have to be favorable for the recycling operation to function.

    At least we are obtaining more gallium from scrap. That has to be good news.

    I got to wondering about that, too. The gold and uranium prices are not up where they were, either.
    Perhaps the cashmere industry is holding its own.

    I'm not sure if this will help but this article suggests that it is the IMF that decides which countries are considered to be emerging markets.

    It says that some countries in Africa were recently upgraded to emerging status. They join South Africa and Mauritius in that category.
    I'm not sure if IMF is the best organization to decide that though.
