Local currency bonds outstanding in emerging East Asia rose to USD20.3 trillion at the end of March 2021, but the overall growth of the bond market moderated somewhat in quarter one. Local currency government bond yield movements were mixed as the resurgence of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases and global inflation fears had varied effects on individual markets. Investor sentiment remained subdued amid the uncertainties.
