This edition of the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook examines medium-term growth prospects, recent macroeconomic policy challenges, and structural challenges including human capital, infrastructure and SME development.  It also looks at economic disparities “between” and “within” countries in the region.  It provides coverage for Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam.

While solid growth is forecast to continue until 2017, countries must address structural issues in order to sustain this favourable outlook. Narrowing development gaps presents one of the region’s most important challenges.

Is this the Asian century? Emerging Asia has experienced remarkable economic growth and a steadfast recovery from the global crisis. According to this new edition of the OECD Southeast Asian Economic Outlook, a number of fast growing Southeast Asian economies, as well as China and India, will maintain their overall dynamism in the next five years. Strong economic performance will be essential for achieving sustained improvements in living standards and laying the foundations for more inclusive societies.
