OAP Economic Issues Seminar: Asia and Pacific Regional Economic Outlook
Good Times, Uncertain Times in Asia: A Time to Prepare
The near-term outlook for Asia remains very strong, which is also in line with our January forecast. However, the outlook is subject to considerable uncertainties including a market correction, a shift toward protectionist policies, and an increase in geopolitical tensions. In such a moment, policymaking should be conservative and aimed at building buffers and increasing resilience.
