This edition of the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook examines the macroeconomic situation, policies and medium-term growth prospects for countries in the region; structural challenges; green growth strategies, policies and institutions; and environmental taxes. It finds that growth for the region will moderate in the near term but solid growth performance will continue until 2016. To sustain this favourable outlook, countries need to meet considerable structural challenges. Green growth offers an alternative growth strategy in the long term.



Carbon emissions and footprints of nations

Over the past two decades, Southeast Asia has enjoyed strong growth performance amid great diversity on both economic and non-economic fronts. Such regional characteristics put clear marks on national carbon emission inventories. Though relatively modest in absolute terms, the amount of “carbon trade”, measured as carbon emissions embodied in international trade flows, relative to national emissions is larger in several ASEAN countries than in China or India.
