Asian Development Outlook September 2023

Robust domestic demand is continuing to support developing Asia’s growth. The reopening of the People’s Republic of China, rebounding tourism, resilient service sectors, healthy money transfers into the region, and stable financial conditions are all helping support economic activity.

Inflation in developing Asia is forecast to decline from 4.4% last year to 3.6% in 2023 and 3.5% in 2024. Price pressures, however, remain strong and core inflation is high in the Caucasus and Central Asia and in South Asia, most notably in Pakistan.
