Asia

(October 2013) Recent global market turmoil is unlikely to have major adverse effects on India and instead provides an opportunity to regain growth momentum through further progress on reforms.
(October 2013) Asia is likely to remain the world’s economic engine despite the recent soft patch in global growth and increasing volatility in international financial market.
(September 2013) Five months after the Rana Plaza factory collapse that left more than 1,100 dead and caused international outrage, Bangladesh is trying to improve the working conditions of its garment workers and allow for greater labour representation.
(September 2013) In an effort to decrease air pollution, China is trying to boost supplies of hydroelectric power. But many local governments are pushing through dam-building projects without proper consultation.
(September 2013) When a country shifts from being a largely agrarian economy to one based on services or industry, it is said to have undergone “structural change”. This has happened in some Asian countries, contributing largely to their economic development. Many low-income countries, however, have yet to undergo this process of structural transformation.
(September 2013) Many countries in developing Asia and the Pacific face the double-burden of fighting both obesity and malnutrition, with a growing number of obese children at the same time vast numbers are stunted by malnutrition. More than half a billion people remain undernourished―more than the total in Africa.
(September 2013) About 30% of the Chinese population, or 400m people, cannot speak Mandarin, according to a government research study that was published last week.
(September 2013) Are wages in China too expensive now for the "Made in China" manufacturers—should firms be moving offshore or inland, and how quickly will these changes happen? Firms within China are expanding and becoming more international, and are therefore requiring new skills and expertise—how can they get access to this talent? Chinese companies are becoming more international and therefore face challenges in hiring talent both in China and in the new markets that they are operating in.
(September 2013) The “three arrows” of Abenomics—the slew of measures named after Shinzo Abe, Japan's prime minister —provide a unique opportunity to exit deflation and revive growth. Abenomics was introduced after the election of Abe to the premiership in December 2012.
(August 2013) Swaminathan Aiyar, a research fellow at the Cato Institute, a US think-tank, recently wrote in the Financial Times: "Great jockey. Pity he doesn’t have a better horse. Raghuram Rajan, the former International Monetary Fund chief economist, will be the next governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). He gained fame by warning about the global build-up of financial risk well before the 2008 meltdown. But his new job will test him. The rupee is crashing, inflation is high, the current account deficit is as wide as the Ganges in flood and both industry and exports are stagnating." Meanwhile, on Wednesday the central bank turned back the clock on reforms to save the currency. “India goes back two decades as RBI imposes capital curbs to stabilize rupee,” read a headline in the business daily The Economic Times.
