Key Messages

  • Growth forecasts are revised down from the projections made in April, to 4.3% for this year and to 4.9% for next year.
  • Inflation in developing Asia, while remaining lower than elsewhere in the world, is increasing amid higher energy and food prices. The regional inflation forecast is raised to 4.5% for this year and 4.0% for next year.
  • Several downside risks loom large. A sharp deceleration in global growth, stronger-than-expected monetary policy tightening in advanced economies, the Russian invasion of Ukraine escalating, a deeper-than-expected deceleration in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), and negative pandemic developments could all dent developing Asia’s growth.​
  • The theme chapter explores how digital entrepreneurship helped keep economies afloat during COVID-19 and how it can become a major engine of growth in the post-pandemic world.​
