Asia fared well throughout the global financial crisis and has since become one of the strongest economic regions in the world.

In this podcast coauthor Jim Walsh talks about The Future of Asian Finance.
Regional Economic Outlook: Asia and Pacific
The economic outlook for Asia and Pacific is stable and robust, with growth expected to hold steady at 5.6 percent in 2015, easing slightly to 5.5 percent in 2016, according to the latest Regional Economic Outlook for Asia and Pacific, published on May 7, 2015.
Although Asia will remain the global growth leader, vulnerabilities associated with increased domestic and foreign debt are rising. Potential growth is likely to slow, reflecting weaker productivity gains, and the effects of aging populations and infrastructure bottlenecks in some countries.
The report finds that monetary and fiscal policy settings are broadly appropriate, but boosting resilience and potential growth remain top priorities, with structural reforms continuing to play a big role. The report also explores Asia's role in global value chains and the factors affecting financial integration within Asia.
