The ASEAN+3 Regional Economic Outlook (AREO) is an annual flagship report published by the ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO).
Launched in 2017, the AREO provides a comprehensive assessment of both the conjunctural and structural issues facing the ASEAN+3 region, which includes 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and China; Hong Kong, China; Japan; and Korea.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the region’s economies have been waging a war against the virus for control of their economies while saving lives. In 2021, the development of effective COVID-19 vaccines and high vaccination rates enabled the ASEAN+3 economies to relax pandemic containment measures, helping to facilitate economic re-opening. Looking ahead in 2022, just as it appears that the region may finally have gained some ground in its long battle against the virus, new risks have emerged.
The Russia-Ukraine conflict, if prolonged, could keep energy prices elevated and risks stoking inflation, dampening the prospects of economic recovery. It could also exacerbate supply chain disruptions and raise global cost pressures, posing the risk of stagflation for major advanced economies. Policy surprises in these economies would have implications for interest rates, capital flows, and financial market volatility in the region.
Join us ‘live’ to discuss ASEAN+3’s most pressing issues on growth outlook, and the opportunities, challenges, and policy priorities as it embarks on its post-pandemic growth phase.
