Established in 2011 by ASEAN+3 Finance Ministers, the ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO) is an international organization that aims to contribute to the macroeconomic and financial resilience and stability in the ASEAN+3 region.
Thematic Chapter: On the Road to Net Zero Chapter 2 of the report focuses on climate change mitigation and transitioning to net zero, and the implications for the long-term macroeconomic and financial development of the ASEAN+3 region as a whole.
Yet downside risks abound. The region’s growth prospects could be dampened by a spike in energy prices caused by an escalation of the Ukraine crisis, or weaker-than-expected recovery in China, or a sharp slowdown in the United States.
“Drawing from the lessons learned from the Asian Financial Crisis, ASEAN+3 financial systems are now more resilient and well-regulated. However, we are living in precarious times. Policymakers need to remain vigilant and continue to rebuild policy buffers. They also need to remain flexible to extend additional support to the economy, if necessary.”
