Despite the macroeconomic headwinds of global inflation, Asia is offering opportunities for growth. China and India in particular are both seeing their economies expand amid central bank tightening and rising consumer prices.
China’s economy is certainly benefiting from the country’s re-opening after COVID-19 lockdowns added a major speed bump to its economic growth. India is also maintaining its status among the up-and-coming economies in terms of expansion.
“Asia’s economic growth will accelerate to 4.6 per cent in 2023 from 3.8 per cent in the previous year on the back of China’s reopening from Covid-19 restrictions, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a report,” a Deccan Herald report noted. “India will maintain its position as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, contributing 15.4 per cent to global growth this calendar year.”
According to the IMF, both regions will be responsible for about half of the world’s economic growth. As the report indicated further, China will account for 34.9% of the global growth in 2023, while overall, Asia will account for 70% of the world’s growth.
“Asia’s domestic demand has so far remained strong despite the monetary tightening, while the external appetite for technology products and other exports is weakening,” the IMF noted in its “Regional Economic Outlook” report.
