NEE – Newly Emerging Economy
A country that has begun to experience higher rates of economic development, usually with higher levels of industrialisation. An NEE differs from an LIC in that it no longer relies primarily on agriculture, has made gains in infrastructure and industrialised growth, and is experiencing increasing incomes and high levels of investment. Examples include Brazil, Russia, China and South Africa.
