Description

The Asia Economic Monitor (AEM) is a semiannual review of emerging East Asia's growth, financial and corporate sector restructuring, and emerging policy issues. It covers the 10 Association of Southeast Asian Nations member countries plus the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Korea. An improving external environment, the PRC`s rapid growth, and strong domestic demand are expected to push up East Asia’s growth to 6.1% in 2003 and 6.6% in 2004. The risks to growth have receded as well.
