Asian Development Outlook (ADO) April 2023: Key Messages

  • Growth in developing Asia is forecast at 4.8% this year and in 2024, up from 4.2% last year. The People's Republic of China's recovery and healthy domestic demand in India will be the region’s main growth supports this year and next.
  • Headline inflation is forecast decelerating to 4.2% this year and 3.3% in 2024 from 4.4% last year. Higher interest rates and still-elevated commodity prices are expected to shape the region’s inflation outlook.
  • An array of immediate and emerging challenges could still hold back the region’s recovery. Policy makers should stay vigilant in the post-pandemic environment of higher inflation, interest rates, and debt. Governments must continue supporting multilateralism, and lean against the risks of global fracturing.
