KAS Japan Weekly COVID-19 Updates

by Cristita Marie Perez

Updates on the latest economic outlook for developing Asia

Growth will slowdown to 2.2% while inflation will rise to 3.2% in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No country will escape the economic impact of the pandemic but more open, trade and tourism-dependent countries will be hit the hardest. The economic impact may spillover to the rest of the economy and trigger a financial crisis if governments fail to take quick and decisive policy actions.
