In 2001, Jim O’Neil, Goldman Sachs' chief economist, created the term BRIC.  In 2005 he identified the “Next 11” (N-11) growth markets -- The  '"Next 11" are: Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Turkey, South Korea, and Vietnam.  More recently he has coined another term – "MIST" or “MIKT” – to describe a quartet of Next 11 countries that appear most promising for western investors: Mexico, Indonesia, South Korea and Turkey.

In 2008, a rival group of EIU - Economist Intelligence Unit economists led by Robert Ward identified the  “CIVETS” countries: which stands for Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa. Ward and the EIU believe these six will be the next generation of emerging nations.
