Asian economies have come through the financial crisis in relatively robust health and should grow solidly in the coming years. But to improve their chances of continued progress, individual nations need to execute “structural reforms.” Rintaro Tamaki, deputy secretary-general of the OECD, explains the challenges facing this dynamic region. Taken from Tamaki’s address to a conference of Asian central bankers, this technical paper is heavy on statistics. Although it doesn’t provide a country-by-country analysis, getAbstract recommends its solid information to investors, finance professionals, policy makers and leaders of businesses operating in Asia.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why Asian economies should continue to grow over the next few years,
- What challenges the region faces and
- What reforms are necessary to ensure Asia’s progress.
