Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2020
This publication provides updated statistics on a comprehensive set of economic, financial, social, and environmental measures as well as select indicators for the Sustainable Development Goals.
The report covers the 49 regional members of ADB. It discusses trends in development progress and the challenges to inclusive and sustainable development that are likely to be amplified by the effects of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
To put into practice the “leave no one behind” principle of the SDGs, the availability of more detailed and informative data is crucial. The report is accompanied by a special supplement, Mapping Poverty through Data Integration and Artificial Intelligence. This explores how poverty estimates can be enhanced by integrating household surveys and censuses with data extracted from satellite imagery to provide more detailed guidance for policy makers.
Select indicators depict Asia and the Pacific economies’ participation in global value chains (GVCs), and their sector-specific comparative advantage in terms of exports. Participation in GVCs involves cross-border trading transactions of inputs used in different stages of production—from raw materials, to intermediate inputs, up to the final products purchased by the end consumers.
These tables for the 49 ADB regional member economies contain information on a wide range of statistical indicators on population, labor force, national accounts, production and price indexes, energy, money and banking, government finance, external trade, balance of payments, international reserves, exchange rates, and external indebtedness.
