Asia Pacific Economic Outlook, Q4 2016

This edition gives the near-term economic outlook for Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam and includes a special article on the ASEAN Economic Community. As Malaysia struggles with moderating economic growth and Vietnam strives to achieve an upper-middle-income nation status, Taiwan enjoys a rebound in growth, led by exports. The Philippines’ economy, on the other hand, is on an upward growth trajectory, and only has its own president’s rhetoric to fear.
