Although economic growth is continuing to slow this year, emerging East Asia has already entered the transition from recession to recovery, says the July issue of the Asia Economic Monitor (AEM), published today by the Asian Development Bank. A V-shaped recovery is forecast and growth is expected to double in 2010. Meanwhile, Japan’s trade surplus in June widened for the first time since October 2007, largely as imports declined at a faster pace. The exports fall, from a year earlier, also slowed to 35.7 percent.

GDP growth will rise from 3 percent this year to 6 percent in 2010. However, the ADB estimates that the region’s medium-term growth average, will be 2 percentage points lower than in the pre-crisis period and it warned that Asia’s domestic stimulus programmes would be unable, on their own to return the region to the higher level.

The ADB says deep recessions in the US, Europe, and Japan will continue to hurt emerging East Asian economies, especially the smaller ones that are highly reliant on exports. But larger economies in the region that have implemented major fiscal packages are beginning to see results from the domestic stimulus, most notably China.

"Emerging East Asia could see a V-shaped recovery, with growth dipping sharply in 2009 before regaining last year’s pace in 2010,” said Jong-Wha Lee, ADB Chief Economist and Head of the Office of Regional Economic Integration.

However, given the tentative nature of the expected recovery, it is critical that authorities stay the course in supporting domestic demand and growth. Monetary and fiscal policies in the region need to remain accommodative until the recovery gains substantial traction, says the AEM.

It is also important that the region looks beyond the crisis and focuses on longer-term issues related to financial regulatory reform. In a special chapter, the AEM underscores the need to maintain financial stability in the region.

"Regulatory reform should eliminate gaps and overlaps, avoid regulatory arbitrage, increase transparency, and improve coordination among relevant authorities," Lee said. "Emerging East Asia should reinforce cooperation in enhancing financial stability by accelerating regional initiatives, and actively participate in designing the new global financial architecture."

Emerging East Asia covers the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plus China; Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan.

Japan

The Japanese Ministry of Finance today released data, which showed that the country’s trade surplus rose to ¥508bn ($5.4bn) in June, while imports dropped 41.9 percent to ¥4,092bn, a slower drop than May’s 42 percent.

Exports fell 35.7 percent from a year earlier - - a slower pace than in May, when the decline was 40.9 percent.

Exports to China fell 23.7 percent in May, the smallest dip since October. Shipments to the US dropped 37.6 percent, the lowest since December, and sales to Europe declined 41.4 percent, also the best this year.
