Asian Development Outlook (ADO) April 2024: Key Messages

  • Growth in developing Asia remained strong at 5.0% in 2023, driven by domestic demand.
  • External demand remained fragile last year, although goods exports bottomed out as semiconductors turned the corner.
  • Regional growth is forecast at 4.9% in 2024 and 2025.
  • Inflation in the region is projected to continue to gradually decline, from 3.3% in 2023 to 3.2% in 2024 and 3.0% in 2025.
  • Downside risks to the outlook pertain to conflicts in the Middle East and geopolitical tensions, the path of US monetary policy, spillovers from the PRC’s property market turbulence, and climate/weather-related disturbances.

To aid in evidence-based policymaking, ADB produces key knowledge resources and partners with statistics agencies in Asia and the Pacific to improve the region's capability to produce effective statistics.

ADB Corporate Data

Data on ADB's operations, projects, project results and performance, internal administration, and financial management; including cofinancing partnerships and climate financing.

Financing Infrastructure

Hefty infrastructure needs of $26 trillion from 2016-2030 means Asia and the Pacific needs to find new ways to attract investment. These could include more private financing, infrastructure bonds, or capturing the value of higher land prices.
