With this edition, we transition from being a monthly to a quarterly publication that focuses on the smaller but important economies of the Asia Pacific region.
With this edition of the Asia Pacific Economic Outlook, we transition from being a monthly to a quarterly publication. This publication will complement our quarterly Global Economic Outlook, which focuses on the world’s major markets, including three Asian countries: China, India, and Japan. The new quarterly Asia Pacific Economic Outlook will focus instead on the smaller but important economies of the region. These will include Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Each quarterly report will cover a rotating collection of these countries as well as any additional topics we deem to be important to our readers’ insight into the region. We hope that our readers will find this new approach to be interesting and useful. Naturally, feedback is most welcome.
