Economic growth in developing Asia is set to rebound in 2021, supported by a healthy global recovery and progress on COVID-19 vaccines, according to ADB’s flagship economic publication, Asian Development Outlook (ADO) 2021. The growth is forecast to moderate slightly in 2022. ADB Chief Economist Yasuyuki Sawada says that while growth in the region is gaining momentum, renewed COVID-19 outbreaks could still undermine the recovery.
