Economic Perspectives and Challenges Ahead for East Asia

With Dr Junhong Chang, Director, ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO)

As we enter 2019, global economic prospects have dimmed for the first time since mid-2016 – a sharp contrast to 2018 where the global economy started on an upbeat note. The baseline outlook in 2019 is expected to be more moderate amid weaker impulse from global trade. The ASEAN+3 region has been doing well and remains the fastest growing region in the world. The near term outlook ahead will be more challenging, as the region grapples with the uncertainties over the direction of global trade, potentially weighing on economic prospects. In addition, over the longer term, policymakers in East Asian will also have to deal with rapid structural shifts, such as challenges from digital transformation, as well as from an aging population.

Dr. Junhong Chang, Director of ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO), based in Singapore, joins us to present economic perspectives and key policy challenges on ASEAN + 3 region. Relevant background documents for this meeting, including the agenda, will be forwarded shortly.
