The economic outlook for Asia amidst global uncertainties

04/13/2022 02:00 pm 04/13/2022 03:00 pm Australia/Melbourne The economic outlook for Asia amidst global uncertainties

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has heightened uncertainty and rattled commodity markets, even as the COVID-19 pandemic persists. Recovery in developing Asia continues, but it now faces significant global headwinds—even as many economies still lag behind their pre-pandemic trends. The Asian Development Outlook 2022 sheds light on these developments and the region’s outlook.

In this presentation, ADB Chief Economist discusses these developments and the region’s outlook based on ADBs ADO 2022.
