Country I

Figure 1 Trends in the human development index

With GNI per capita of US$7,610 in 2012, Country I is classified as uppermiddle income by the World Bank. Its human development index (HDI) at 0.629 places the country in the medium human development group of countries. Country I had a population of just over 51 million in 2012.

When we think about less developed countries, we tend to focus on the low- and lower-middle income countries. This uppermiddle country has clearly gone through a process of economic growth in order to reach that upper-middle income status. However, a closer look suggests that there are challenges for Country I to face.
