ADB SEADS Webinar on ASEAN Economic Outlook: Prospects for Growth and Regional Cooperation

After a challenging couple of years, there are signs that #SoutheastAsia is rising from the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, output growth in the region rebounded to 2.9% with projections to further strengthen to 4.9% in 2022.

However, the region is facing global headwinds, including #trade and supply chain disruptions, prolonged #unemployment, emerging variants, higher #inflation, and tighter interest rates.

How will the region tackle these challenges and sustain recovery?

During the webinar, the speakers will discuss:

The economic outlook for the region

  • The role of trade, trade disruptions, and trade agreements
  • Financial connectedness and financial integration
  • Challenges facing central banks in the region.
