Asian Outlook 2011VIEW EVENT DETAILS
The Asian Development Outlook is an annual economic report that provides a comprehensive analysis of macroeconomic and development issues of the developing member countries of the Asian Development Bank. Dr. Rhee will focus on the report's theme of South-South economic linkages. He will speak on the changing economic center of gravity from the North to the South and the opportunities this shift opens up for developing countries in Asia. The report includes empirical evidence and discusses policy options for developing Asian countries to benefit from the rising economic power of emerging markets through trade and investment.
