  Remarks at Press Conference on GAVI Replenishment

East Asia to remain fastest growing region in the world in 2015–UN report

But growth could be at risk if China experiences sharper-than-expected slowdown or global liquidity tightens sharply 

Bangkok  — East Asia is projected to remain on a path of robust growth in 2015 with many countries in the region experiencing solid growth rates, says the United Nations World Economic Situation and Prospects 2015 (WESP) released today.

East Asia’s gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to have grown by 6.1 per cent in 2014, moderately down from 6.4 per cent in 2013 and well below the pace recorded in the period before the global financial crisis. WESP projects economic growth will maintain the 6.1 per cent rate in 2015, before settling at 6.0 per cent in 2016.
