Book - 2004
Rate this:
This edition of the yearly survey examines regional economic and social developments in the Asia and the Pacific region during 2003. Findings include that, despite the war in Iraq and the SARS crisis, the region continued to show robust economic growth, with an economic growth rate of six per cent whilst inflation was successfully kept in check. However, poverty remains a challenge for many countries in the region. The survey examines the poverty reduction strategies of 20 countries in the region, and concludes that more needs to be done to align them more explicitly with the Millennium Development Goals.
