Earlier in the day, Dr. Mark Mobius, Executive Chairman at Templeton Asset Management said at the Middle East Investment Summit in Dubai, "emerging markets will continue to see higher growth rates than their counterparts in the West, as they benefit from solid population growth rates, resulting in higher demand for commodities, goods and services."
