Regional Economic Outlook Update: Asia and Pacific
Following robust growth in the first half of 2016, the near-term outlook for Asia remains strong. Accommodative policies and a recent easing of financial conditions will underpin domestic demand, offsetting weak export growth. GDP growth is forecast to be broadly stable at 5.4 percent in 2016 and 5.3 percent in 2017. Asia continues to face downside risks amid headwinds that can significantly impact medium-term growth prospects.
