Asia – Transcending the Middle-Income Challenge
April 27, 2017 - 13:00
NUPI has the pleasure of hosting the presentations of this year’s Asian Development Outlook. What challenges are middle-income economies facing?
The Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) flagship economic publication Asian Development Outlook 2017 (ADO) provides a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic issues in developing Asia, including growth projections by country and region. Decades of rapid growth transformed developing Asia into a largely middle income region, but the pace of expansion has fallen off since the 2008 global financial crisis. This year’s ADO theme, ‘Transcending the Middle-Income Challenge’, explores the obstacles middle-income economies face to sustain healthy growth and offers policy advice to overcome them.
