Economic Crisis

Register

Overview

Asia Pacific economies are mounting wide-ranging efforts to mitigate the impact of the global financial crisis and to adapt their growth models to new economic realities.  This project assesses the region’s progress in fighting recession, rebalancing economic structures, and managing the transition to a new, sustained growth path. It anticipates the critical policy changes that are required in the Asia Pacific to move from crisis management to stable growth, and explore important potential growth engines—ranging from regional integration to social policies and the environment—that can drive the region’s future development. The study pays close attention, in particular, to the role of regional linkages and cooperation in achieving a timely recovery. The research builds on data and forecasts developed by several institutions and focuses on analysis and synthesis rather than primary data collection.

The study was released at the time of APEC Summit in Singapore in the fall of 2009 with sections addressing: (a) new, sustainable growth models for the Asia Pacific, (b) progress by individual economies toward those models, and (c) the role of regional economic relations during the crisis and in facilitating recovery. The full report entitled, "Inclusive, Balanced, Sustained Growth in the Asia-Pacific" was published in partnership with the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (Singapore) in May 2010.
