Re-energizing the economies of Asia Pacific

While 2020 has seen a slowdown in growth, there are signs of an economic recovery – particularly in the Asia Pacific region. As the IMF recently projected, economies in emerging and developing Asia will contract by 1.7 percent in 2021 and are projected to grow by 8 percent next year, in both instances outperforming every other world region.
