Jakarta, Indonesia, November 29 - The Regional seminar on “The Economic Outlook and Policy Challenges of Southeast Asia”
This seminar is jointly organized by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia, the OECD Development Centre and the ASEAN Secretariat. The seminar will open with a presentation of the main findings of the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook 2011/12 (SAEO 2011/12) and provide an opportunity to discuss policy challenges facing the Indonesian economy and ways to narrow the development gap in Southeast Asia.
What is the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook?
Growth for the region will be moderate in the near-term but will have solid growth performance through 2016. To sustain such favorable growth, the SEA countries need to cope with considerable structural challenges. Green growth offers alternative long-term growth strategies.
The SAEO 2011/12 provides an annual update on medium-term economic trends, short-term macroeconomic challenges and a thematic focus on green growth. This publication also contains individual country notes for six countries of Southeast Asia, assessing the structural policy reforms in, for instance, human capital development, infrastructure, SMEs development and taxation identified in the medium-term plans by Southeast Asian countries.
The Outlook analyses the potential benefits of transitioning to low-carbon green economies as well as issues of emissions trading, carbon footprint and taxation based on experience in both OECD member and selected Asian countries.
What are the current macroeconomic trends and risks the region is facing? More significantly over the medium-term, the countries of the region are also facing important challenges to steer their economies towards a more “balanced, inclusive and sustainable” growth path. What are these challenges and how is the region dealing with them? Finally, what are the green growth priorities of ASEAN countries and what trade-offs faced with adopting green policies?
