India 19th Most Exposed to Global Risk

India is ranked as the 19th most exposed country worldwide to the global risks.

Somalia has the highest exposure and least resilience, according to a study of 178 countries by risk analysis firm Maplecroft. Russia (30) and China (58) also rated poorly in the survey. Brazil ranked 97th.

The report listed corruption, terrorism and political instability as are some of the most prevalent risks in India that “threaten human security and business continuity, while diverting valuable government resources and money.”

“Poor governance and a relative lack of societal resilience in India, Russia, and China are identified as significant factors that could undermine their ability to combat the effects of ‘black swan’ events,” according to the survey.

New Zealand, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Canada rated as the safest global risk countries.
