DHL Global Connectedness Index 2014
Globalization is recovering from financial crisis
The DHL Global Connectedness Index shows that global connectedness, measured by cross-border flows of trade, capital, information and people, has recovered most of its losses incurred during the financial crisis.
- The world's economic center of gravity shifts eastward; emerging economies see bigger connectedness gains than advanced economies
- Flows of trade, capital, information and people stretched out over more distant geographies, documenting a decline in regionalization
- Europe remains most globally connected region; Netherlands again ranks No. 1
