IMF: Asia and Pacific Outlook Robust, but Risks Remain

Asia’s growth is forecast to accelerate in 2017 to 5.5 percent, up from 5.3 percent in 2016, according to the IMF.

This makes Asia the leader of global economic growth, say IMF economists in a briefing on Friday about Asian and Pacific countries. But they pointed to significant downside risks that need to be addressed.
