2015 Change Readiness Index
No government, business or society is immune to change. The way they prepare for and respond to sudden shocks or longer-term trends has a huge impact on the prosperity and welfare of citizens and institutions.

By gaining a better understanding of a country’s capability to withstand and capitalize on change, governments, policy makers, NGOs, civil society institutions, development agencies, investors and private sector enterprises can identify and address capability gaps and make more informed investment decisions.

The Change Readiness Index (CRI) by KPMG is designed to measure how effectively a country’s government, private and public enterprises, people and wider civil society anticipate, prepare for, manage and respond to change and cultivate opportunity.

Of the 127 countries ranked in the 2015 CRI, six of the 10 ASEAN countries are among the 50 most change-ready countries in the world.

Beyond macroeconomic policy, ASEAN’s change-readiness is driven by:

  • economic openness
  • economic diversification
  • quality of entrepreneurship
  • strength of its financial sectors
