PHNOM PENH, CAMBODIA (3 April 2019) — Following a very strong economic performance last year, Cambodia will likely see moderate, but still robust, growth, with the economy expected to expand about 7% this year and 6.8% next year.
HONG KONG, CHINA (3 April 2019) — Growth in the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is expected to moderate in the next two years as global growth slows and trade tensions with the United States weigh on trade and investment.
VIENTIANE, LAO PEOPLE’S DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC (3 April 2019) — Economic growth in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic is expected to remain stable this year and next, supported by the expanding agriculture, energy, industry, and services sectors.
YANGON, MYANMAR (3 April 2019) — Myanmar’s economic growth is expected to pick up in 2019 and 2020, thanks to higher foreign direct investment and positive responses to the government’s economic and policy reforms.
HA NOI, VIET NAM (03 April 2019) — Viet Nam’s economy experienced another year of strong growth in 2018, although a weaker external environment could affect the country’s growth outlook for this year and next.
