Asia in the Global Economy

Slow growth in Europe - which represents about 25% of the global economy - cannot be without consequences for Asia... My second point is that - in looking to the future - the continuing recovery of Asian nations needs to be closely watched... This recovery cannot solely rely on exports. A second engine of growth will be needed..."
