Market expansion in the coming years will be dependent on growth in new and emerging markets at home and abroad — markets that are increasingly diverse and often speak a language other than English. In fact, in a recent survey of strategy+business readers, 71 percent of respondents said they plan to grow their business in countries or market segments that speak a different language than the one they currently use in their daily operations.
