Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2013 - Asia's Economic Transformation: Where to, How, and How Fast?

Synopsis:

The Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific is ADB’s flagship publication comprising a statistical compendium and a theme chapter of relevance to the development objectives of ADB’s developing member countries. This year’s theme chapter discusses the economic transformation Asia has experienced during the last four decades and where the region is headed. It probes into questions of how and how fast the transformation will unfold in different economies under different conditions, and how governments can aid this process – shifting from a predominantly agricultural economy to more industrialized one; overcoming the middle income trap; attempting to leapfrog to services; in small island economies, and in resource rich countries.
