Asian Development Bank: Asian Development Outlook 2019

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) will launch its flagship economic publication, Asian Development Outlook (ADO), at a conference in Asia House on 5 April. The ADO provides a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic issues in developing Asia, with growth projections for 45 economies, including the People’s Republic of China, India and Indonesia. It is launched annually in April and updated in September.

At this conference, Abdul Abiad, Director of the Macroeconomic Research Division at ADB, will deliver a presentation on the ADO, focusing on:

  • Economic prospects for developing Asia and the Pacific;
  • Trade policy uncertainty in Asia: measurement and trends;
  • Rising US monetary policy uncertainty and its implications for Asian exchange rate volatility; and
  • How Asian exchange rate depreciations have affected domestic financing conditions.

Abdul’s presentation will be followed by an expert panel discussion on the heightened uncertainty of the current global economic landscape, focusing on the key risks to the region’s outlook and the pockets of vulnerability that are building up.
