Developing Asia is leading the world recovery. ADB forecasts a V-shaped recovery in 2010, as timely monetary and fiscal easing continues to stimulate economic activity. The key challenge is to convert the strong rebound to sustained, more inclusive growth. Rebalancing sources of growth more toward domestic and regional demand, without losing export momentum, would yield an open regionalism that is good for Asia and good for the world. Regional cooperation must rise to the next level, easing flows in trade, capital, and people. Asian Development Bank President Haruhiko Kuroda discusses the ADB’s goal of achieving a regionally integrated yet globally connected Asia.
