FCA journalists are cordially invited to join a virtual media briefing to discuss the most pressing economic and financial issues across the ASEAN+3 region, comprising 10 ASEAN countries plus China, Japan, and Korea. The event is organized by the ASEAN+3 Macroeconomic Research Office (AMRO) in conjunction with the release of its ASEAN+3 Regional Economic Outlook 2021 Update.

One year and a half since the outbreak of COVID-19, what is the outlook for the ASEAN+3 region in 2021 and 2022? What are the key factors affecting the region’s recovery and stability? How will rising inflation and the Fed’s expected tapering policy affect the region’s financial markets? What to look out for when regional economies exit from their extraordinary pandemic support policies?

Find out from AMRO Chief Economist, Hoe Ee Khor and AMRO Group Head for Regional and Financial Surveillance, Li Lian Ong.
