Description

The Asia Economic Monitor is a semiannual review of emerging East Asia's growth and policy issues. It covers the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations; People's Republic of China; Hong Kong, China; Republic of Korea; and Taipei,China. With emerging East Asia’s V-shaped recovery on track, it is now time to unwind the policy stimulus that helped power the solid domestic demand that kept growth strong. The sustainability of the recovery will depend heavily on the timing, policy mix, and pace at which economic stimulus is withdrawn.
