Abstract:

The East Asia and Pacific Economic Update is the comprehensive, twice-yearly review of the region's economies prepared by the East Asia and Pacific region of the World Bank. In this edition titled, Robust Recovery, Rising Risks, the report notes that output and trade flows have recovered to above pre-crisis levels throughout developing East Asia. Confidence is on the rise, and private sector investment is once again driving growth. Yet greater confidence in the region's growth prospects and concerns about tepid economic expansion in advanced economies are creating the need for policy makers to perform a delicate balancing act. In particular, the return, of large capital inflows to East Asia, has caused currencies to appreciate substantially and is leading to concerns about asset price bubbles. Emerging risks are addressed at the same time as countries are tackling medium-term challenges to sustain strong growth. I increasingly, the need for China to rebalance the economy by altering the pattern of growth and investment is becoming critical for sustainability. Commodity exporters in the region need to ensure a transparent framework to use resource-related revenues for development. The middle-income countries of the region, excluding China, need to raise investment in physical and human capital and encourage innovation if they are to eventually attain high-income status. --Book Jacket.
