Asia Pacific Economic Outlook, Q1 2017

This edition gives the near-term economic outlook for Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, and South Korea. Though Australia and South Korea registered growth over the last few quarters, external and internal factors may impede future growth. Singapore, faced with slowing economic growth, is revamping. In Indonesia, the central bank is likely to halt its easing spree, until the Fed’s stance on interest rates and the new US government’s policies are clearer.
