"The world is at a critical turning point. If we are to reverse the alarming decline in nature, we must respond with urgency and coordinated action. These efforts are needed to ensure the survival of our ecosystems, and for the sake of our shared future and prosperity."
- ADB President Masatsugu Asakawa
Data and statistical analysis in the Asia and Pacific region contributes to knowledge generation in ADB, helping strengthen its institutional priorities and operational effectiveness in its developing member countries.

While growth forecasts are raised for East Asia and Central Asia, downward revisions for the rest of the region weigh on the outlook. The recovery in global demand for exports from developing Asia, supported by robust growth in advanced economies, will continue to benefit the region’s export-oriented economies. But the recovery momentum has weakened in economies battling renewed waves of COVID-19.
