Even though top-16 developing countries in the developing world GDP PPP per capita ranking have GDP PPP per capita more than the last ranking country (Greece) in the developed world, these countries are not classified as advanced economies. Why?

As per IMF, “The main criteria used by the WEO to classify the world into advanced economies and emerging market and developing economies are (1) per capita income level, (2) export diversification—so oil exporters that have high per capita GDP would not make the advanced classification because around 70% of its exports are oil, and (3) degree of integration into the global financial system.  Note, however, that these are not the only factors considered in deciding the classification of countries. This classification has evolved over time. The objective is to facilitate analysis by providing a reasonably meaningful method of organizing data. Reclassification only happens when something marked changes or the case for change in terms of the three criteria above becomes overwhelming.”
